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!
