    SGRT Road Construction in Long Beach...

    Anyone know if the trail repairs in Long Beach underway yet? I saw signs stating that the work was to be completed in April.
    All right, you primitive screw-heads, listen up! See this? This... is my boomstick! It's a twelve-gauge, double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt-blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right... shop smart: shop S-Mart... You got that?

    Construction? All I know is that stretch from PCH to El Dorado is bumpier than a book written in braille.

    Still a lot of grit and such, but it looks like they just need to paint the road markings. Gonna miss the the cobblestones, errr, I mean the broken pavement...wish Lakewood would get on board for this as well.

    If this is true, I will be stoked. It seems like a pretty nice trail aside from the beat up pavement. We need confirmation.

    Trail is smooth except for the area just south of Del Amo. I want to say this the Lakewood area? I saw they are preparing to paint the road markings, as well. Also, it does look like they are cleaning the road debris with a street sweeper, there was a lot less pebbles and grit. In a weird way, I miss the Roubaix...but then again, I used to lick 9 volt batteries when I was a kid so this shouldn't surprise anyone...

    They still need to paint lines, not that anybody pays attention to them anyway. THey have little yellow clippy things in the middle where the line will go, not sure waht the point of that is either.

    If you want the old broken pavement feel, head north, it's your same old favorite crappy pavement trail the closer you get to Whittier (and presumably north). They did patch some of the more egregious holes, fortunately.

    Hmmm. I don't know, the trail just north of Whittier doesn't seem that bad. Also, there was some minor smoothing under the Washington Bl bridge...that asphalt lift was bad. Saw a few incidents there before. I believe they did just do some repairs around the 4 corners and north to Peck. Still, nothing like what the Seal Beach area was.

    Now, if we can only get them to fix the switchback off of San Gabriel River Parkway. If you guys are not familiar with that stretch of the trail, it's where you have to make a steep, narrow turn to cross onto SGRP which is in the Pico Rivera Golf Course area....that part sucks.

    The stretch of Coyote Creek Trail just north of the SGRT fork/bridge is now repaired and repaved. It was pulverized by the heavy equipment that worked on SGRT south of there.

    Here's a pic.

    Cleaned up some posts in the thread. Let's all learn to recognize sarcasm and not resort to name-calling. Thank you.

    Carry on.
