la river trail survey-new dtown la stretch possibilities

survey up for those of you that use, or want to use, the la river trail. currently starts/stops in vernon with is south of dtown la
and home to both bad pavement and giant trucks. survey is about constructing another stretch to bypass surface streets from the vernon area to the
dtown la/ just north of chinatown area. scroll down a little on the page to see/click on the survey. it's short...like 6 questions. this is also
a handy locally-based website to peruse if you don't already:

The surrounding neighborhood will still be the same. Fixing up the Los Angeles River is a good thing. Fixing up the surrounding neighborhood is also a good thing.

Attempts to fix up the River without the neighborhood -- where are we with that !!

I'm not sure if the encampment is still there, but north of Los Feliz Blvd. to the LA Zoo on the LART is/was a stretch of tents and it smelled pretty bad (a mix of urine/feces), enough to make me want to vomit in my mouth especially when breathing hard. I usually skip that section and either ride the Griffith Park loop or cross the North Atwater bridge and ride on the other side of the river. Also once you hit the end of the south LART trail there's no adequate access to DTLA or Elysian Park without having to cross Broadway or Spring which have no bike lanes whatsoever.

The whole bike infrastructure here in LA sucks. Just to get the LA River from where I live, I have to cross the intersection of San Fernando and Fletcher, which is sketchy as #$%. I still love riding my bike in the city, but you need to be hyper alert and a little bit crazy yourself!
