Bike Trail Connection Opens in La Mirada

Ribbon cutting ceremony for the Coyote Creek Segment of the O.C. Loop.

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) officials recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony at La Mirada Behringer Athletic Facility.  The ceremony marked the completion of a two-mile segment of the OC Loop, a path for bicyclists and pedestrians to travel throughout the county.

OCTA Chairman Shawn Nelson and CEO Darrell Johnson led the ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Coyote Creek Trail segment that runs near Beach Boulevard, between the Cities of La Mirada and Buena Park.  La Mirada Mayor Larry Mowles and other City, OCTA, and OC Parks representatives were also in attendance at the ceremony.

OCTA is working with transportation officials in cities along the OC Loop to create 66 miles of bikeway and pedestrian connections across Orange County.

The OC Loop provides a convenient pathway for residents to bike, walk and connect to some of California’s most scenic beaches and inland reaches.  The OC Loop also provides commuters with connections to many bus stops and three Metrolink stations, as well as major employment centers.

The loop is about 70 percent complete. The County of Orange, through a Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) grant, is working with cities along the OC Loop on a feasibility study to close the remaining gaps.

The study will provide cities with grant-ready information on their segments including design concepts and costs.

Nearly 46 miles of the loop are off-street trails along the San Gabriel River, Coyote Creek, Santa Ana River and the Coastal Beach Trail.
