Channel Characteristics

The channel in this frame is a trapezoidal concrete leveed cross section with an approximate width of 400 feet.

Landside Right-of-Way Characteristics

The landside right-of-way in this frame contains both east and west facing parcels, and is further limited by industrial and residential development, transmission easements, and Interstate 710 and Interstate 105. It exists for extensive lengths at about 15 feet in width. However, there are large 200-foot-wide tracts of the right-of-way incorporated into recreational park space (Ralph C. Dills and Hollydale Parks along with portions of the LA River Trail). There is a dense residential context, east and west facing parcels along levee of varying widths, areas typically 15 feet wide, in addition to utility corridors.

Notable Features

  • Dense residential context
  • Utility ROWs along the left bank of the river
  • Rio Hondo confluence at river mile 12.0 along the left bank
  • Hollydale Park from river mile 11 to 11.5 along the left bank
  • Ralph C. Dils Park from river mile 9.5 to 10.0 along the left bank
  • LA River Trail provides recreational opportunities for pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians

Significant Considerations

  • Utility ROW projects require further coordination with power companies, but also provide a significant amount of land for corridor connectivity.
