San Gabriel River Bike Trail Closure

by: Seal Beach PIO
Posted: November 12, 2018



SEAL BEACH...A segment of the San Gabriel River Bike Trail between the Marina Drive Bridge and the 1st Street parking lot will be closed from November 13th through early January 2019. A dedicated bike trial detour will be in place starting November 13th which will lead cyclists to the 1st Street parking lot.


The closure is due to rough grading operations that are currently underway at the Ocean Place Development at the corner of Marina Drive and 1st Street. During recent grading operations, the grading contractor uncovered a portion of an old wooden sea wall toward the northwest corner of the property. The sea wall is estimated to have been constructed between 1915 and 1920. The remaining portion of the sea wall will be removed utilizing specialized, heavy equipment that will need to be placed near the adjacent River Bike Trail. In an overabundance of caution, we are closing this segment of the River Bike Trail while the sea wall is removed.
