Runners Endorse Separated Bike / Ped Facilities on the Bridge

Todd Rose, President of A Running Experience Long Beach, a club with 465 members, says:

“We believe that a running trail / pedestrian walkway from Downtown Long Beach would be utilized by short and long distance runners as a great training route, with the advantage of a 250 foot hill climb affording stunning views of the harbor and sunrise and sunsets across San Pedro Bay. We can envision running races that traverse the Port of Long Beach and the two amazing bridges. What a great way to show off the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles. This bridge also will create a much safer link to the LA River Trail for pedestrians. If you install nice pathways, we think runners and cyclists will use them.”
