Construction began today on the final leg of the Silver Lake reservoirs' walking path, according to the Echo Park-Silver Lake Patch. The 500 foot section of the path runs along the north end of the Ivanhoe Reservoir between Armstrong Avenue and West Silver lake Drive. When complete, the new stretch of walking path will "meander slightly through an olive grove adjacent to the Neighborhood Nursery School" and include a "pleasant new rounded corner" at the corner of West Silver Lake Drive, a new retaining wall and fence for the Ivanhoe Reservoir Dam, and new benches. Work is expected to be complete by October. While construction is underway, pedestrians on Armstrong Avenue will be detoured further up West Silver lake Drive, and vehicle traffic has been reduced to westbound and truck traffic only. The original plans for the walking path--which would have built a boardwalk along the length of the final stretch of the path--were abandoned a year ago.
