An upgrade and overhaul of a section of the South Bay Bicycle Trail along the beach between 62nd Avenue and Culver Boulevard in Playa del Rey has been completed.

The South Bay Bike Trail stretches nearly 22 miles between Will Rogers State Beach and Torrance County Beach, with most of the path running along public beaches.

The renovation project involved the reconstruction of the existing bike trail, including the construction of deep base to stabilize the path and new concrete pavement, as well as the installation of new striping and pavement markings.

The cost of the project was approximately $431,000, with funding provided from Proposition C local return funds.

“It is important that the bike paths on our beaches are safe,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe, who announced the project completion Tuesday, March 18th. “These improvements will enhance the safety and increase enjoyment of the numerous residents and visitors who use the South Bay Bike Trail.”
