West County - Joe Rodota Trail
Visit the West County Regional Trail
long term project is the replacement of the two small wood bridges on the west
end of the trail. These bridges are several decades old and are at the end of
their useful life. In order to maintain the character of the trail, new wood
bridges will be installed on new concrete abutments to extend use for several
next steps for this project are to:
- Perform structural engineering evaluations and geotechnical investigations
for design of the new abutments and bridges.
- Prepare improvement plans and specifications.
- Secure permits.
- Publicly bid the project when funds are available.
Cost & Funding
Replacement of all of the bridges and retaining walls is
estimated to cost $1,034,568, and no funds are available for engineering and
construction at this time. The cost of performing the deck and rail
improvements to the 145 foot bridge is estimated to cost $175,000 and will paid
for by Regional Parks Major Maintenance funding.
Most of the West County/Joe Rodota Trail was constructed along abandoned railroad right of way. It’s believed the railroad bridges and retaining walls were built in the early 1900s. The bridges were modified for pedestrians and bicyclists and opened to the public in 1990. The 13-mile trail is popular with pedestrians and bicyclists for recreation and commuting because it links Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Graton and Forestville.
