Bike path, tunnel dedication set for Tuesday

By
From page A5 | February 08, 2013 |

The city of Davis will dedicate a new bicycle path and tunnel at 11 a.m. Tuesday, just south of the soon-to-open New Harmony Mutual Housing Community in South Davis. The public is invited to attend on bicycles. Vehicle parking also will be available at the New Harmony project site, 3030 Cowell Blvd.

The new bike path connects to a corrugated metal bike tunnel that was originally installed in 1990 during a reconfiguration of Drummond Avenue. The bike tunnel and access to it were buried until the New Harmony project began in 2012 and the city acquired the funding to complete the bike path connections. The bike path improvements were jointly provided for through city funding, grant funds and developer funds from the adjacent New Harmony affordable housing.

The new off-street path adds to Davis’ extensive bikeway system featuring more than 53 miles of off-street bicycle paths and 52 miles of bicycle lanes. The Davis bike network is part of a city that covers approximately 10 square miles.

Those who wish to bicycle to the dedication from the west may follow the bicycle path and greenbelt that runs parallel and just north of Albany Avenue in South Davis. Those biking from the east may follow the bike path or Koso Street, both of which head west from Willow Creek Park. The dedication ceremony will take place directly south of the New Harmony housing project and just west of Drummond Avenue.

For more information, call the city manager’s office at 530-757-5602.
