Davis-Woodland path a benefit

By
From page A6 | April 09, 2013 |

Sunday’s article by Tom Sakash suggested many benefits from removing the Fremont Trestle. Replacing the section of right-of-way between Davis and Woodland with a bike path would be another.

There are an increasing number of bikers who pedal between Davis and Woodland. They take either Road 102 (Pole Line Road) or F Street. Both are two-lane roads with high-speed traffic and with an increasing number of cars. There are no shoulders on F Street after it passes Anderson Road, and cars must pull into the oncoming traffic lane to pass the slower-moving bikes. On Road 102 there is a shoulder, but the traffic is heavy and often going 65 miles per hour.

The California Northern Railroad right-of-way parallels both of these but is separated and could be used for bikes, equestrians or pedestrians if the tracks were removed. A bike corridor on the railroad right-of-way would be an inexpensive enhancement to both Davis and Woodland. It would also make our roads safer for travel.
