June 4
The Future of Shoemaker Park
The Long Beach City Council will consider a feasibility plan and considerations for adaptively reusing the Shoemaker Bridge into a park, during its 5 p.m. June 4 meeting at City Hall.
Vice Mayor Robert Garcia, author of the proposal, would like to have major new park project to adaptively reuse the Shoemaker Bridge.
Shoemaker Bridge is scheduled to be demolished and replaced with a new bridge to improve traffic flow and expand park space, as part of the I-710 expansion project.
The current bridge plan, which will be included as an early action I-710 project, builds a new bridge over the Los Angeles River and realigns the on and off ramps between Broadway and 7th Street. Building the new bridge creates a unique opportunity for adaptively reusing the current bridge instead of tearing it down.
The Shoemaker Bridge project will double the size of Cesar Chavez Park, by reconnecting a portion of the park that is currently split by the 710 Freeway. While construction of the new Shoemaker Bridge is still a couple years away, planning and construction considerations must be made now in order to adaptively reuse the current bridge. The $5.5 million of Measure R funds have already been committed to design and engineering for construction of the new bridge.
The city council also is considering an agreement between the Los Angles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the City of Long Beach to provide design funding for the replacement of the Shoemaker Bridge from the Interstate 710 Freeway to its end on the east side of the Los Angeles River. The agreement would increase appropriations in the Gas Street Improvement Fund in the Department of Public Works by $5.5 million.

June 4
City Council to Take Position on Metro Issues
