Currently, river access south of Figueroa Street is limited. Access from all the NELA neighborhoods to the River must pass through the main streets of Lincoln Heights. As part of Greenway 2020, the Broadway Connectors aims to serve as a signature elevated public realm in the form of a bicycle and pedestrian path that closes the gap between the NELA neighborhoods and Downtown via the Cornfields.
Specifically, this project will enhance the Greenway by creating a connection to Park Row Drive (an access point to Dodger Stadium) via an access point on the Broadway Street Bridge. The success of this project is contingent on the future Greenway that is planned south of Figueroa Street. The existing portion of the Greenway ends in Elysian Valley.
