Southport rail-to-trail opens Friday


West Sacramento officials plan to officially open the Clarksburg Branch Line Trail in a ceremony Friday morning at 10:00 a.m., just east of the Target store (2005 Town Center Plaza).

The city has converted a 1.25-mile segment of the former Yolo Short Line Railroad into a paved multi-use trail ranging from River City High School northward to South River Road. Funding assistance came from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG).

The trail is accessible to cyclists and pedestrians for commuting, shopping and recreation, reports city spokesman Art Schroeder.
