The City of Sacramento has launched an online newsletter “to update its citizens about services, accomplishments and plans.” The newsletter is called “City Express” and will be published quarterly.
From what I’ve read so far, it’s rather informative. I was especially interested to learn that the new bike route from Natomas to downtown will be opening in October.
When construction is finished on the bike and ped bridge over the drainage canal and over I-80, Natomas residents will have the first direct bicycle route to downtown. The bridges will link to the bike trail and eliminate about 3.2 miles of travel from north Natomas. The project starts at Peregrine Park, crossing over the canal and over the freeway to hook up with the trail adjacent to Gateway Oaks Drive.
From the project website I learned that in 1995, there were 38 miles of bike and pedestrian trails in Sacramento and that there are 80 today. Pretty cool.
Give it a read and let us know what you think.
