The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved an updated Bicycle Master Plan on Tuesday.
The plan will add 832 miles of new bikeways throughout unincorporated county regions – including 158 miles in the Santa Clarita Valley, where the county maintains just 3.3 miles of bike routes today.
The plan calls for the county to invest $330 million over 20 years in new bike lanes, paths and routes, to “increase the interconnectedness of bike corridors and develop support facilities that encourage cycling.”
“While Los Angeles is known as a car culture,” Supervisor Don Knabe said in a statement Tuesday, “voters have told us time and again that they want options – be it public transit or bicycles – as a way to alleviate traffic congestion, improve air quality and enhance the health and quality-of-life in our communities.”
