Covell Park Bike Path Reconstruction Project Update
The Covell Park Bike Path Reconstruction project is currently under construction. The project is being constructed in two phases.
- Phase 1 of the Covell Bike Path project includes the closure of the bike path between the Community Park overcrossing and Balboa Avenue. This includes the pedestrian/bike bridge. The Phase 1 schedule has been extended by two weeks due to an aluminum material shortage and other construction related delays, and is now scheduled to be completed by September 28, 2018. Cyclists and pedestrians can connect to Community Park via Balboa Ave to Catalina Drive.
- Phase 2 of the Covell Bike Path Project will result in the closure of the Covell Park bike path between Balboa Ave and Grande Ave. Cyclists and pedestrians can bypass the Phase 2 detour via Bueno Dr between Baja Ave and Grande Ave. The detour for Phase 2 is scheduled to be completed between October 1 and November 5, 2018.
- A crossing guard is currently located at Catalina Drive and Covell Blvd during the morning and afternoon to assist with crossing for school and camp traffic. (7:00 – 9:00 a.m., 12:30 – 1:30 p.m., and 2:45 – 3:45 p.m.). The crossing guard will remain during the Phase 1 construction.
Please see the schematic attached for construction detours. The projected construction and detour dates are estimates. The City will provide updates should the scheduled construction and detour dates change.
