Making LA River Revitalization a Reality

Taylor Yard Bikeway / Pedestrian Bridge Project

The new Taylor Yard Bikeway/Pedestrian Bridge Project broke ground in April 2019. The distinctive, orange steel bridge will connect the Elysian Valley community to the planned Taylor Yard G2 River Park on the east side of the LA River. The bridge is designed for bike and pedestrian use, is 400 feet long and will be supported by abutments and a concrete pier in the center of the river. The steel structure is 30 feet high and 27 feet wide. Because construction in the river is limited to summer months for safety reasons, the $18 million bridge is expected to take two summers to complete. Estimated completion date is Spring of 2021. Watch for detours on the LA River bike path when construction starts.
