Culver City Supports Extending the Ballona Creek Bike Path
Published on August 10, 2023
Culver City has approved funding to prepare a Feasibility Study (Study) to advance the "Streets for All" Ballona Creek Bike Path Extension Project (Project).
The Ballona Creek Bike Path (Bike Path) currently runs from National Blvd at Syd Kronenthal Park in Culver City to the Santa Monica Bay. Ballona Creek begins, however, at Cochran Ave and Venice Blvd in the City of Los Angeles. "Streets for All" has proposed extending the bike path north-east of Syd Kronenthal Park to Cochran Ave and Venice Blvd.
The Project would involve a variety of organizations and community groups and will involve multiple stakeholders, including "Streets for All," the City of Culver City, the City of Los Angeles (District 10), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans District 7), the County of Los Angeles (District 2), Redcar Properties, and the US Army Corps of Engineers. The Project is in the early stages of development and fiscal responsibility for design and construction costs remain to be determined.
The Study will examine design challenges, determine right-of-way jurisdiction, utility conflicts, permitting requirements, environmental constraints, as well as alignment and cost alternatives along a preferred route and potential alternative routes. The total cost for the Study is $420,000 and completion will take approximately six months (January 2024). Culver City has allocated $100,000 toward the Study. Other contributors include the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, the City of Los Angeles (District 10), and the County of Los Angeles (District 2).
