BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES
Dominguez Channel Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail
County of Los Angeles
As part of the master plan to provide a system of pedestrian and bicycle trails, the County of Los
Angeles Department of Public Works implemented the upgrade of an existing trail and establishment
of a new trail within the existing Dominguez Channel flood control channel right of way. The project
enhancements were separated into three segments. Two of the segments involved improving an
existing public pedestrian walkway and bicycle path. The third segment involved installing a
pedestrian and bicycle trail on an existing access road.
The improvements include pavement repair and rehabilitation, trail widening, construction of retaining
walls (to provide trail width), new gates and fencing, landscaping and irrigation, and bicycle path
signing and striping. Civil Works Engineers was responsible for civil portion of construction documents
including layout of site improvements, grading, drainage modifications, pavement repair and retaining
wall layout. Cost estimates and project specifications were also prepared.
