Whittier Mayor Joe Vinatieri announced on Monday that the Whittier Greenway Trail, a 7.3-mile commuter and recreational bikeway, pedestrian path, and greenbelt, will be completed by the end of May.

“For those west side GWT enthusiasts, the retrofit, repaint of the Norwalk Boulevard bridge, is coming along quite nicely. It’s scheduled for completion next month and not only will it look great, but we will be able to do the whole GWT from end to end as the GWT East extension is slated for opening at the end of May. Nice!” Vinatieri wrote on his Facebook page.

The trail is expected to have a positive impact on the community by promoting active transportation, outdoor recreation, fitness and education. Over a half million trail users enjoy the trail annually. Residents and visitors appreciate the safe space to walk, run and ride bikes with their families and pets.

The city invites the public to celebrate the completion of the trail at a grand opening event planned for late May. More details will be announced soon on the city’s website and social media platforms.
