Public input sought on proposed bikeway

City officials are seeking the public’s input about a proposed bike and pedestrian path slated to run adjacent to the Burbank Western Channel from the downtown Burbank Metrolink station to Alameda Avenue.

A community meeting about the project is scheduled to be held at 6 p.m. this Wednesday in Room 102 of the Administrative Services Building, 301 E. Olive Ave.

According to city officials, the project will “expand the city’s bicycle network as a high-quality bicycle and pedestrian facility, as well as enhance the condition of the channel.”

The project would include constructing a 12-foot-wide path with two local street crossings where Providencia Avenue meets Lake Street and Verdugo Avenue, along with a grade-separated crossing at Alameda Avenue.

At the meeting, city officials will provide an overview of the project and give the public an opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.

For more information, call (818) 238-5180.
