Construction is finally set to begin mid April on a pathway along the Glendale portion of the Los Angeles River.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Glendale Narrow Riverwalk Project received concept design approval from the city council in 2006, but in recent years has met a number of roadblocks.

The bulk of the delay for the planned $1.6 million walkway stemmed from protracted negotiations with Dreamworks to gain access to a 15-foot strip of land along the studio, according to the Times.
