Update: Bike lanes were installed on Chandler Blvd. between Leghorn St. and Woodman Ave. this past weekend.
Chandler Blvd. will soon be getting bike lanes to fill an existing gap between Leghorn St. and Woodman Ave.. The project will extend the existing Chandler Blvd. Orange Line bike lanes for approximately one mile, creating a continuous 4.8 mile east-west facility between Van Nuys Blvd. and Vineland Ave. (2.7 miles from Vineland Ave. to Leghorn St. and 1.2 miles from Van Nuys Blvd. to Woodman Ave.). In addition to all the lane mileage, Chandler Blvd. also has a 2.8 mile Class I bike path that starts from Vineland Ave. (near the Metro Red Line North Hollywood Station) and continues to the Burbank City limit at N Mariposa St..
In total, Chandler Blvd. has 7.6 miles of dedicated bike facilities and is a very important component of the L.A. Bike Plan’s backbone network in the southern San Fernando Valley. Chandler offers connections to the Metro Red Line and Metro Orange Line transit stations, and to bike lanes on Woodman Ave., Laurel Canyon Ave. and Colfax Ave.. We’ll be sure to update you here on the Bike Blog when the lanes go in (tentatively scheduled for this weekend).
