The Army Corps of Engineers has reached an important milestone with substantial completion of the embankment and bikeway restoration project along the north bank of the Santa Ana River. The bikeway is now fully open for use, and the last outstanding item of remaining work includes landscaping and the irrigation of the riverbed bottom. The Army Corps is obligated to restore the vegetation at the base of the riverbed, and the effort to re-landscape will begin this month and extend into February or March of next year. A construction entrance will remain at La Palma Avenue and Camino De Bryant while this final phase is underway. Once complete, the Army Corps will provide a permanent driveway entrance at La Palma Avenue and Camino De Bryant. The permanent pedestrian connection at this location will also be restored.
