Southport bike/walk trail now open
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — FEB 5, 2014 —
NORTH-SOUTH TRAIL CONNECTS SOUTHPORT FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO BARGE CANAL
West Sacramento officials and community members performed a “ribbon cutting” to celebrate the opening of the new Clarksburg Branch Line Trail in Southport on Friday morning.
The 1.25-mile trail for bikes and pedestrians is built on a stretch of the former Yolo Short Line Railroad tracks. It runs from near Target and River City High School northward to South River Road, where a new bridge is now under construction along the barge canal.
The “rails to trails” project is part of the city’s master plan for bicycle and pedestrian links. You can view a map of the full master plan on our website here.
