Happy to see work being started on more bike lanes to a vital link to the valley. This adds another mile of bike lanes on Riverside Drive between Laurel Canyon and the I-170 freeway. This is a logical addition that continues along the three mile stretch all the way to Van Nuys Blvd.
At the same time, we’re awaiting word from Councilman Krekorian’s office about the status of the Lankershim bike lanes which were laid out in the 2010 Bike Plan. The addition of the Riverside lanes still doesn’t get you to Lankershim, but it does take care of providing cyclists relief from approaching the jammed Riverside/Tujunga/Camarillo intersection. Now if I could only get to Griffith Park safely.
