The City of Citrus Heights will soon construct a 2.9 mile long multi-use trail between Sunrise Boulevard (near Arcade Creek Park Preserve) and Wachtel Way that will largely follow an existing Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) electric corridor easement. The project is located in the City and unincorporated Orangevale, and connects several neighborhoods to seven parks, several schools, and the Sunrise MarketPlace. In addition to a paved multi-use trail, this Project also includes:
- A new signalized crossing of Fair Oaks Boulevard
- Pathway lighting
- Sidewalk, curb, and gutter along a segment of Oak Avenue
- Drainage improvements
- Traffic signal modifications
The Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail Project is funded primarily by a $6.2 million Caltrans Active Transportation Program grant (ATP grant). The money from these grants can only be used for projects that increase active transportation, like walking and biking.
