Central Sonoma Valley Trail
The goal of the project is to create a safe route for pedestrians and bicyclists between Verano Avenue and Agua Caliente Road in the Sonoma Valley area. This multi phased trail project is described in the Central Sonoma Valley Bikeway Plan Final Report dated November 15, 2001 and as listed below. The report identified a 2.76-mile conceptual bike/pedestrian pathway paralleling the Highway 12 corridor. Please see Figure 3 titled "Preferred Alignment." The pathway would provide pedestrians and bicyclists an alternative route to Highway 12.
Larson Park Trail Segment
For the first phase, the pathway starts at DeChene Avenue and continues through Larson Park, which is owned by the County. The improvements included a paved path and striping. The work was completed in May 2011 and was funded by Proposition 40 – 2002 Resources Bond, Transportation Development Act Article 3, and Measure M.
Flowery School Segment
This trail segment starts at Larson Park and extends north through Flowery Elementary School to Depot Road. The proposed improvements include a paved path and pedestrian/bicycle bridge crossing Pequeno Creek. The County is negotiating with the Sonoma Valley Unified School District for a trail easement in order to construct improvements on school property. This segment is funded by Measure M and Metropolitan Transportation Commission Lifeline Transportation funds. The environmental and design work will occur in years 2013 and 2014. The scheduled construction completion date is in summer 2015.
Verano Avenue Segment
This trail segment starts at Main Street and continues west on the north side of Verano Avenue to Sonoma Creek. Along this route, there are no sidewalks on either side of the road, but there is a crosswalk connecting to Maxwell Farms Regional Park. The proposed improvements include a paved path separated from the vehicle traffic on Verano Avenue. All of the improvements will be located on County -owned property. This segment is funded by Measure M and Metropolitan Transportation Commission Lifeline Transportation funds. The environmental and design work will occur in years 2013 and 2014. The scheduled construction completion date is in summer 2015.
