 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 one (1) miles of the Sycamore Trail (Phase II & III) from Evergreen Avenue / Sycamore Avenue intersection (Joey Lopes Park) to Stone Boulevard / Park Boulevard intersection, along the Lower Northwest Interceptor easement property. This project will enhance the Evergreen Avenue crossing at Sycamore Avenue and potentially the Stone Boulevard crossing at Park Boulevard.

 This project will construct a pedestrian overcrossing over US 50, east of Harbor Boulevard and west of Jefferson Boulevard.
