Project: Lower LA River Channel Restoration and Access

Description: The Project will expand on, and bring to 30% design, the concrete channel enhancements examined in the Lower Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan (LLARRP) and the Los Angeles River Master Plan (LARMP) for a 0.6-mile reach adjacent to Ralph C. Dills Park in Paramount. The focus will include enhancing the channel for wildlife habitat and connectivity, a new multi-use river trail along the low-flow channel with access from the adjacent LA River bikeway, and other suggested design elements from the LLARRP such as overlooks and connections to nearby Dominguez High School. This approach will support the full, multi-benefit vision for this reach detailed in the LLARRP and will integrate that vision with channel improvements essential for wildlife habitat to support existing species and the eventual recovery of anadromous fishes within the LA River watershed.
