Did you mean the I-5? I take it as so.
There is an on-topic thread about this, but to summarize, at least three things need to happen before the CCRT is restored through the Alondra_Blvd/I-5_underpass/SFS_SwapMeet section:
1) Freeway Dr must again connect into Alondra east of the bridge (this is expected in Fall of `14)
2) Alondra Bridge over the I-5 and the CC must reopen (expected at end of August)
3) The assinine pedestrian bridge over CC that is privatized by the Swap Meet must be removed or raised off of the bike path.
We will be lucky to see any 2 of the above 3. Its very amazing how some rich guys from Newport Beach that run the Swap Meet (a cash business that caters to `el mundo tercero`) have excluded a whole class of the public that use a non-motorized thoroughfare. It shows how `plata sucia` can takeover when the State of California does so much eminent domain action.

new bridge at SFS Swap Meet on CC bike path is a private resource that interferes with a public resource (the bike path). Why was the bridge installed so that access is restricted by the Swap Meet? So far, cyclists are banned.
Is Abu Yusuf still the Bike Coordinator? If not, can I have an email for the new one?
Thank you for contacting the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works with you concern. Our Bikeways Unit staff will field review and investigate the location you specified. It is understood that at the conclusion of the Caltrans project, the Coyote Creek bike path will be restored to pre-project conditions or better.
