What & Why?
The lower Russian River’s River Road / Highway 116 is a high traffic, high speed roadway with a history of multiple bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
Regional Parks is proposing to develop a 19.3-mile long multi-use trail along the Russian River corridor between Mirabel Park and Jenner, which would provide a safe walking and cycling alternative for commuters and visitors traveling this congested corridor.
Regional Parks has been awarded funding from Caltrans' Sustainable Transportation Planning program and North Sonoma County Air Pollution Control District to complete a feasibility study for the Lower Russian River Trail.
The study will include getting public input from the community and stakeholders, evaluating existing site conditions and roads, mapping, identifying opportunities and constraints, and recommending a preferred trail route.
