Project Description:

In 2013, The City of West Sacramento adopted a Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan with the vision of providing one of the nation’s top bicycle and pedestrian friendly communities. To fulfill this vision, the City is improving infrastructure for bicycling and walking, while capitalizing on several of City’s positive characteristics. Included in this Master Pan was the Sycamore Trail project that will extend south from approximately Sacramento Avenue / Yolo Street intersection to Barge Canal and ultimately to Lake Washington Boulevard / Jefferson Boulevard intersection: a safe non-vehicular pedestrian and bicycle trail that will provide connections between central City neighborhoods linking people with schools, parks, businesses and commercial centers. The Sycamore Trail is currently divided into multiple phases.

 This Project will construct approximately half (½) miles of the Sycamore Trail (Phase I) from Rice Avenue to West Capitol Avenue, east of Maple Street, and along the Lower Northwest Interceptor easement property. This project will enhance the Michigan Boulevard trail crossing and potentially the West Capitol Avenue crossing to Joey Lopes Park.

 This project will also construct Class III bicycle facility in Bryte neighborhood, between Harbor Boulevard and 5th Street. From Harbor Boulevard, the Class II bicycle facility will extend east along Lisbon Avenue, south along Todhunter Avenue, east along Anna Street, south along Arthur Drive, east along Cummins Way, south along 6th Street and east along A Street. 

 Project Benefits:

Bring a multi-modal improvement to the City.

 Provide cardiovascular exercise amenities for people of all ages, improving their health and well-being, and reducing health care costs.

 Reduce air pollution and the consumption of nonrenewable resources by replacing automobile trips with bicycling and walking trips.

 Reduced transportation costs.

 Reduced traffic – bicycling and walking are viable alternatives for many short trips, including trips to work or the store.

 Enjoyment for the whole family – all ages and experience levels can participate.
