Construction of OC Loop Bikeway Segment D will soon begin and will span about one mile through portions of Brea, Placentia, and Yorba Linda. The bikeway will start adjacent to Imperial Highway and continue (along County’s Carbon Canyon Flood Control Channel) south of Bastanchury Road to connect with the existing El Cajon Trail.
To accommodate the construction of the new bikeway, some trees and vegetation will need to be removed. Approximately 30 out of 50 trees will be removed in order to construct the trail and retaining walls.
Anticipated Tree Removal Activities: February 1, 2024 through February 23, 2024. Bikeway Construction: May/June 2024 through the end of 2025. Schedules are subject to change due to weather or other factors. This work will require traffic lane closures on Bastanchury Road for several weeks, and the City will communicate those traffic impacts to the community.
The Segment D gap closure will consist of a two-lane paved recreation trail placed on top of the flood control channel and will include a series of retaining walls and other improvements. In addition, the loop project has been designed in coordination with the planned replacement of the Golden Avenue Bridge.
The OC Loop vision is 66 miles of seamless connections and an opportunity for people to bike, walk, and connect to many of OC’s most popular destinations. Several gaps were identified along the OC Loop—closing these gaps would effectively increase connectivity, expand transportation options, and enhance regional opportunities. Details about the OC Loop are available at www.OCTA.net/OCLoop.
