Broken into three phases, this bike path is partially completed. The San Fernando Road Bike Path follows the Metrolink light rail tracks which are already in place. With a completed 1.75 mile section servicing the San Fernando Metrolink stop, this path has already received acclaim.
Construction on a larger and more expensive segment of the trail began in mid-2010. This portion of the rail-with-trail extends southward for 2.75 miles between Metrolink stops, and involves upgrades to trail safety and overall appearance.
The final phase consists of a 4.3 mile segment which extends further south toward West Hollywood. No timetable is available for the final leg of the San Fernando Road Bike Path.
Numerous locations of human activity which would benefit from safe pedestrian and bicycle access exist adjacent to the tracks. These include Pierce College,(a Los Angeles City Community College) which has sports and arts facilities as well as being an important regional educational facility, and Warner Center, an small-industrial and business/commercial center which generates a lot of freeway and surface street traffic.
