The first phase of the Regional Bikeway Project was completed with improvements along the north side of Mines Avenue. The second phase of construction then commenced along the south side with sidewalk/ADA improvements and underground utility work followed by construction of the bike lanes and bioswale.

Motorists and pedestrians should be aware of the temporary change in traffic patterns. During the second phase of construction, traffic was shifted to the north side of Mines Avenue to allow for construction activities on the south side. During this period of construction, it’s important that all motorists adhere to all directional signage including No-Left-Turn restrictions. As a reminder, traffic fines are doubled in construction zones.

As with all construction projects on major roadways, delays are to be expected. Residents and commuters are encouraged to use alternate routes while the construction area from Mines Avenue starting at Paramount Boulevard up to the east of Rimbank Avenue will be impacted.

The overall goal of the project is to provide a safe regional bicycle connection to existing trails, promote active transportation and stormwater quality, and beautify the community. In addition to the bicycle lanes, improvements within the project limits include pavement reconstruction, construction of bioswales for stormwater capture, ADA improvements, traffic signal modifications at the intersections of Paramount Boulevard at Mines Avenue and Rosemead Boulevard at Mines Avenue, landscaping improvements, and signage.

While the City understands that this is a short-term inconvenience, it will ultimately benefit the residents’ overall quality of life. The Regional Bikeway Project is anticipated to be completed in Summer 2024.
