Costa Mesa Completes Multi-Use Path

On Friday May 18 in time for Bike-to-Work Week the city of Costa Mesa celebrated completion of roadway refurbishment along Arlington Drive that included roadway resurfacing, landscaping and irrigation and (drum roll) a multi-use path about 0.71 miles long along Arlington Drive. The project cost $4.7 million that's $6.62 million per mile folks, that's called design by committee. Whatever.

Back in Laguna the City began refurbishing a 1910 farmer's burn dump in 2011, by 2015 the project costing $4.6 million was not complete, the final costs remain unknown.

A multi-use path from Canyon Acres Drive to Forest Avenue could serve residents of Laguna Canyon at a fraction of these project costs.      -LS
