The Copeland Creek Bike Path Reconstruction Project will include repair of the most deteriorated segments of the existing bike and pedestrian path west of Highway 101 along Copeland Creek and between Commerce Boulevard and Sonoma State University at the eastern City limits.
The reconstruction work will occur at these specific path segments:
- North side path between Commerce Blvd. to approximately 1105 ft. east of Commerce Blvd.
- North side path from the Copeland Creek bike/pedestrian bridge south of State Farm Drive @ Enterprise Drive to Seed Farm Drive
- South side path between Commerce Blvd. to approximately 435 ft. east of Commerce Blvd.
- South side path just east of Rohnert Park City Hall to Copeland Creek bike/pedestrian bridge south of Hunter Drive @ Enterprise Drive
- South side path east of Snyder Lane to the eastern City limits at Sonoma State University
A total $670,000 in federal Transportation Enhancement funds is programmed in the 2010 Regional Transportation Improvement Plan for the environmental and construction phases. The design phase of this project is funded by Measure M sales tax proceeds. Measure M - the Traffic Relief Act for Sonoma County – was passed by the voters in November 2004 and provides for a ¼ cent sales tax to be used to maintain local streets, fix potholes, accelerate widening of Highway 101, improve interchanges, restore and enhance transit, support development of passenger rail, and build safe bicycle and pedestrian routes. The City will provide a $20,000 match from gas tax proceeds to supplement the Measure M funds in the design phase. No general fund monies are being used to fund this project.
