Local bike trail meeting


Dunbar School

Saturday October 4th 2014 - 9:00am to


The Sonoma County Regional Parks Department is preparing a feasibility study for a 13-mile bicycle and pedestrian trail along the Sonoma Hwy. corridor.

The trail would run from Melita Road in east Santa Rosa to Agua Caliente Road north of Sonoma, connecting The Springs, Glen Ellen and Kenwood and providing links to parks and popular Sonoma Valley destinations.

A workshop is scheduled for Oct. 4 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Dunbar Elementary School, 11700 Dunbar Road, in Glen Ellen. Another information session is scheduled for Nov. 1 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Sonoma Valley Regional Park in Glen Ellen. At this session, participants will walk to a potential trail section near the highway to better visualize project conditions and challenges.

The trail would provide a safe way for bicyclists and pedestrians to travel the busy Highway 12 corridor and would be a major component of Sonoma County’s inter-city trail network. This trail feasibility study will look at possible alignment and design, project costs and benefits, and construction priorities. The study is funded with a $190,575 community-based transportation planning grant administered by Regional Parks and the California Department of Transportation.

A project survey is available in English and Spanish at: parks.sonomacounty.ca.gov/About_Us/Project_Details/Sonoma_Valley_Trail_Proposed.aspx.
