Rose Bowl Loop improvements begin today

Work will begin Monday, March 29, on the installation of a new, dedicated pedestrian walkway around the Rose Bowl Loop in Pasadena.

The 3.3-mile recreational loop is popular with walkers, joggers, skaters, cyclists and others.

The first step in the project will be slurry sealing, which protects and extends the life of street paving. The slurry sealing will be done on several streets around the Rose Bowl Stadium and Brookside Golf Course, including Washington Boulevard, West Drive, Seco Street, Rosemont Avenue, Rose Bowl Drive and Parkview Avenue.

When the slurry sealing is completed, the pedestrian walkway will be installed. The entire width and length of the 13-foot walkway will be distinguished by tan-colored pavement. Traffic delineators will be placed along the outside of the walkway to help separate walkers from other users and allow for two-way pedestrian travel. The existing pedestrian restriction signs and messages will be removed.

The Rose Bowl Loop project is expected to be completed by mid-May. For more information, including maps and diagrams, visit or call (626) 744-4720.
