Project Overview:

The Glendale Narrows Riverwalk has been in development by the City of Glendale for almost 15 years.  Outreach and discussions have been ongoing with stakeholders, adjacent property owners and business, and user groups.  In 2010, the majority of the trail in Phase 2 was constructed as part of the Fairmont Avenue Extension project.  In 2012, Phase 1 was constructed with Proposition 84 funding.  In the summer of 2015, the remainder (majority) of Phase 2 will be completed with a combination of Proposition 84 and Measure R funding.  This will complete the trail portion of the Riverwalk, making 100% of Glendale’s Los Angeles River frontage fully developed for recreational use.

Phase 3 of the project is the bridges. The Los Angeles River Bridge is a key component to increase the use/function of the LA River trails by increasing the accessibility for bicycle commuter use and allowing for lighter/shorter recreational uses.  The Verdugo Wash Bridge will open the LA River trails to users in south Glendale and the North Atwater community of Los Angeles.

Together with the La Kretz Bridge (near Chevy Chase Drive) and the Burbank Bridge (near Bob Hope Drive) and the Los Angeles County LA River Trail Project (between Riverside Drive and Whitsett Avenue), the Glendale Narrows Riverwalk Bridges will create a series of exercise loops for all ability levels (3.5 miles, 5.5 miles, 10 miles and longer), open the LA River trails for easier commuter bicycle use, and eventually open all 52 miles of the river for recreational uses.
