North Fork Coyote Creek Trail/Bike Path Segment is Fully Closed

Caltrans has fully closed a portion of a trail, or bike path, along North Fork Coyote Creek adjacent to the Santa Ana Freeway (I-5) at Alondra Boulevard in Santa Fe Springs and Norwalk.  Several gates along the path are closed and signed.  Signs marking a suggested detour route are posted on Rosecrans Avenue, Carmenita Road, Alondra Boulevard and Marquardt Avenue.  The path’s partial full closure is in effect for approximately one year, until approximately mid-2013. 

The trail is within the limits of the I-5 HOV Widening and Alondra Boulevard Bridge Project, a $110 million project to construct one carpool lane and one general purpose lane in both directions from North Fork Coyote Creek Bridge to Marquardt Avenue, reconstruct overcrossings at Alondra Boulevard and North Fork Coyote Creek, and realign and upgrade adjacent frontage roads.  The project is scheduled to complete in mid-2015.
