Harbor Drive Cycle Track Meeting Set for Wednesday

The meeting will take place in the Redondo Beach Main Library from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

The city of Redondo Beach will host a second stakeholder meeting Wednesday evening concerning the construction of a cycle track on North Harbor Drive and streetscape improvements on North Harbor Drive and Herondo Street in South Redondo Beach.

The meeting will take place in the second floor meeting room at the Redondo Beach Main Library, located at 303 N. Pacific Coast Hwy. in South Redondo Beach, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

"The purpose of the meeting is to discuss project concepts developed following the first stakeholder meeting," according to a notice from the city. "The project concepts will include street and landscape improvements along North Harbor Drive and Herondo Street."

According to the city, a state grant will pay for the construction of the cycle track on North Harbor Drive—part of the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan—and the striping of new bicycle lanes on Herondo Street. The city also plans to resurface North Harbor Drive between Herondo and Beryl streets.

"An engineering and design services firm, Stantec Consulting Inc., has been hired by the City to collect public input on these projects along with adjacent landscaping and streetscape improvements, develop conceptual designs for the projects, and complete necessary construction plans and specifications," according to the city. "The North Harbor Drive resurfacing, cycle track construction, and Herondo Street bike lane striping improvements are expected to take place in the fall of 2013."

The meeting held in December served as an initial visioning meeting for the project. Money from Chevron, which is using Mole B and King Harbor to offload giant coke drums for its refinery in El Segundo, is paying for the consultants.
