ROSE BOWL RECREATION LOOP WILL BE FOCUS OF COMMUNITY MEETING

Pasadena’s most popular exercise track is scheduled for a facelift.

Pasadena city staff will outline steps for improving the 3.3-mile Rose Bowl recreation loop during a community meeting Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Arroyo Room at Brookside Golf Club, 1133 Rosemont Ave.  The meeting will be hosted by the Pasadena Transportation Department.

Proposed plans call for slurry seal of the entire loop, a new and wider section for walkers in both directions, a suitable lane for bicyclists and vehicles, and a narrower outside lane for vehicles. This combination was chosen for its adaptability to future changes, if needed.

“The roadways that encircle the Rose Bowl Stadium provide a unique and valuable resource to those who enjoy outdoor exercise,” said Bahman Janka, transportation administrator.

The innermost portion of the loop is a dedicated walkway currently outlined with a painted buffer zone separating foot traffic from the adjacent bicycle and vehicular traffic.

The final draft report describing the improvements is available at reference desks at all Pasadena public libraries and at www.cityofpasadena.net/rosebowlloop.  For more information call 744-4610.
