Transportation officials have scheduled two meetings to gather comments from cyclists and other interested citizens about the Arroyo Verdugo Regional Bikeway, which is in the final planning stages.
City officials and business people from Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, La Canada Flintridge and South Pasadena have been working for more than a year on the plan, with the goal of creating dozens of new bike paths and making traveling smoother for recreational and commuter cyclists.
Workshops on the bikeway proposal will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at the South Pasadena War Memorial Building, 435 S. Fair Oaks Ave., and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Glendale Municipal Services Building, 633 E. Broadway.
The bikeway plan is being prepared with a $32,000 grant from the Southern California Assn. of Governments. Once it is approved by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, an implementation plan will be prepared to designate portions of certain roads for bicycle use, officials said.
