Mace, I-80 interchange bike path closed this weekend

Continuing the theme of rebuilding roads and bike paths in Davis this year, the Interstate 80 bike path at the Mace Boulevard interchange — a popular spot for those heading to and from Sacramento on their bikes — will be closed this weekend for repairs.

Caltrans, the lead agency on the project, has removed the temporary fencing near the interchange and will patch the existing potholes, repave the path and re-stripe the bike lanes over the next few days, according to Dennis Keaton, a spokesman for the state agency.

City public works officials say the work should be finished Monday and that the path will reopen Tuesday.

Bicyclists are encouraged to take Second Street to Mace Boulevard as a detour if they’re cycling on to Sacramento via County Road 32A, according to Dave Kemp, the city’s active transportation coordinator.

Caltrans will pay for the entire cost of the project.

Naming bike paths 

Meanwhile, in an effort to honor city leaders who have played instrumental roles in leading Davis to become the nation’s most bicycle-friendly community, the city’s Historical Resources Management Commission unanimously approved a recommendation last month to name the bike path stretching from Olive Drive to County Road 32A after Frank and Eve Child.

The Childs were Davis residents who, in 1963, first suggested that the city stripe bike lanes in town. In 1967, Davis became the first city in the country to do so.

The commission also voted to name the bike path running from San Marino Drive to Drummond Avenue in South Davis after Donna and Dale Lott, who moved to Davis in 1965 and who played central roles in pushing Davis to embrace bicycles.

Also, the commission voted to name the bike path from Drummond Avenue to Research Park Drive after Maynard Skinner, a former City Council member and mayor who has served several terms on the dais over the past few decades. Skinner was a key player in lobbying for painted bike lanes in 1967.

The commission’s recommendations await Davis City Council action.
