Bike Path linking Irvine and Laguna Hills (via I405/I5 Underpass) is open - almost

This morning I did a recon ride of the new bike path bypassing the freeway bridge at Irvine Center Drive. I found that all the pavement/asphalt is complete and the way is clear - almost. There is a chainlink fence blocking the path near the south-side exit of the underpass. But one can easily walk their bike past the fence and continue. This is a great bypass for those who are averse to crossing the freeway using the bridge. However, accessing this bike path on the at Irvine Center Drive presents its own set of hazards such as crossing several lanes of high-speed traffic to make the left turn to get onto the path (coming up ICD from Laguna Hills). This can be just as harrowing as making the sprint across the freeway bridge during rush hour traffic. The plus side (if you survive the LH turn), is you now have a clear-traffic-free entry to the San Diego Creek Trail.
