The final section of the Tesla Avenue Path, an approximately 500 foot-long concrete sidewalk on the north end of the Ivanhoe Reservoir, was poured into place during the past week. But the missing link in the pathway that circles the Ivanhoe and Silver Lake reservoirs is still not officially open to the public, with signs and orange traffic cones marking off the buff-colored sidewalk. Still to be installed is a chain link fence atop a new retaining wall and a few benches along the new sidewalk, which got underway in early June. After all those traffic cones and remaining barricades are removed, will that six-foot wide sidewalk be wide enough for all those runners, walkers, dogs and baby strollers?
* Update: Helen Grace Olivares, a DWP mechanical engineer working on the project, the path won’t be officially complete until mid October after some detail work, including the installation of sprinklers and other items, is finished.
