Irwindale Non-motorized Active Transportation Plan

For a community with unconventional development patterns due to its industrial history, the new Metro rail station opens the opportunity to develop safe and efficient first/last mile connections for people bicycling and walking. The plan will develop a cohesive pedestrian and bicycle network with safe, comfortable, and convenient routes to nearby destinations. The plan will integrate new multiuse paths and connections to the regional bikeway network, including to amenities such as the San Gabriel River Trail.

Bicycle and pedestrian network recommendations, policies, and facility design guidelines will address connectivity barriers, such as active and inactive quarries (up to 200 acres) and freeways. A unique public outreach program targets the employment population, key stakeholders, and the small residential population.
