Driving and biking the narrow and crumbling roads of Elysian Park has been like running an obstacle course, with visitors having to maneuver around giant pot holes, large cracks and missing chunks of pavement. In recent weeks, however, motorists and cyclists have faced different types of obstacles in the form of detours, bulldozers and work crews. It’s part of $2.3 million project to resurface the park’s miles of roads.
The resurfacing project, which began in January, is expected be completed next month, ahead of schedule, according to an email newsletter sent out last week by Council District 1. “All of Angels point to Park Row Drive has been completed. 50% of Point Grandview has already been resurfaced and the remaining 50% will be completed by the end of this week,” according to the newsletter that was sent last week.
