The popular bike lane on southbound Seal Beach Blvd is closed for a few hundred feet near Adolfo Lopez. That intersection is about halfway between Westminster Blvd and PCH, near the police station. Work will finish about December 24.
There are “Share the Road” signs in the area, but riders who aren’t in the mood to “share” with 50+mph traffic can turn west on Westminster, then take the San Gabriel River Trail or PCH south toward Seal Beach or beyond.
The northbound bike lane is open. The right-hand turn lane onto Adolfo Lopez will be lengthened and upgrades will be made to the traffic signal system at that intersection.
For probably the first time ever, Buena Park will have a community workshop about bike facilities:
October 23 4:30-6:30pm
Buena Park Community Center
6688 Beach Blvd
Please attend and spread the word!

SB-127, The Complete Streets Bill, will require Caltrans to add features such as protected bike lanes when it repairs or repaves local streets. The bill has passed both houses of the state legislature. Now it awaits Governor Newsom’s signature, and Caltrans is asking for a veto.
Please call Governor Newsom’s office at 916-445-2841 or Send an Email asking him to sign SB-172, The Complete Streets Bill.
Making the call or sending an email will only take one or two minutes, and SB-127 will improve bike safety on PCH, Beach Blvd, Newport Blvd, Whittier Blvd, Ortega Hwy, Imperial Hwy, Laguna Cyn Rd, Carbon Cyn Rd and more.
