Learn about South El Monte’s Merced Avenue Greenway Project

Posted by on June 5, 2018

What is the Merced Avenue Greenway Project?

The City of South El Monte, Council for Watershed Health, Bike San Gabriel Valley, and Climate Resolve have teamed up to create a multiple benefit approach to enhance public health and beautify the neighborhood! 


The Merced Avenue project aims to demonstrate how street design can combat rising temperatures, increase pedestrian/bicyclist safety, and improve local water quality. ​A neighborhood-scale project like Merced Avenue is intended to provide a real-world model of watershed-based design that integrates many on-going efforts in the region to address flood management, water quality and habitat restoration.
