As part of California's Strategic Growth Initiatives, Proposition 84 has funded an urban greening study to investigate how to encourage and implement urban agriculture in the Cornfield Arroyo Specific Plan (CASP) area of Los Angeles.
LA River Corp is committed to improving the design and understanding of implementable urban agriculture in the CASP area of Los Angeles as a means to create a healthier, more sustainable neighborhood by strategizing a single green planning framework inclusive of a multiplicity of goals. More information can be found at the project's website.
We are working to break ground on the first philanthropically-funded bridge in Los Angeles. It will also be the first cable-stayed bridge to be built in the region. LA Kretz crossing will connect the newly-expanded North Atwater Park to the 4,200 acres inside of Griffith Park via a bicycle, pedestrian and equestrian bridge across the LA River.
The bridge, which will offer spectacular views of the river, the surrounding parks and downtown Los Angeles, will be visible from the adjacent I-5 Freeway and will announce the river’s rebirth to countless travelers each day. The RRC raised nearly 5 million dollars in private funds and is managing the project's development. Currently, we have completed Construction Drawings and anticipate completing the project in 2017.
