VALLEY ROUNDUP | Agoura Hills

Work Nearly Done on New Bike Lanes

August 10, 2000|GRACE E. JANG

Work is expected to be completed next month on 2 1/2 miles of bike lanes on each side of Agoura Road, between Liberty Canyon and Kanan roads.

The project is funded by city money and a $650,000 grant from the federal Transportation Equity Act of the 21st Century, which was passed in 1998, City Engineer Jim Thorsen said.

The work is part of a countywide plan to extend bike lanes from the city of Los Angeles through Calabasas and Agoura Hills to the Ventura County border. Calabasas is also working on its part of the route.

Agoura Hills will complete the remainder of its stretch of bike lanes over the next several years and connect its lanes to those of Westlake Village within the next two years. The entire project will cost Agoura Hills more than $1.1 million, Thorsen said.

"Agoura Road is heavily traveled on weekdays and weekends, so it's vital to open up the corridors for bikers," he said.
