The crossing has been surprisingly anticipated for the reason that plans for the bridge were floated in 2011. The mission used to be permitted in 2013, and Crossroads of the World proprietor Morton La Kretz kicked in an nearly$5 million to make it happen. But the project was once delayed and by 2014, the fee estimate had swelled to $9 million. By ultimate year, that wide variety had ballooned to just over $16 million.

The North Atwater Bridge is now not the solely one planned for this LA River Bike Path-adjacent part of the river. A brilliant orange bridge connecting Elysian Valley and Cypress Park is predicted to commence development this summer.

Another bridge is planned that may want to join Glendale and Griffith Park. A nation ballot measure, if surpassed in June, would make $20 million handy for that bridge’s construction.
Construction on a putting and steeply-priced bridge to connect Atwater Village and Griffith Park is about to get underway.

Preparation for the $16-million bridge’s construction is opening this week, with fundamental building starting in mid-April, says town engineering bureau spokesperson Mary Nemick. The work is slated to wrap up subsequent fall.

During construction, the LA River Bike Path will be closed from Los Feliz Boulevard to Colorado Street, beginning in late April. To get round the closure, it’s endorsed that people on bikes detour onto Crystal Springs Road into Griffith Park.

Called the North Atwater Bridge bridge, it will provide pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians a way to cross the river between North Atwater Park and Griffith Park.
