Northside School Class I Bike Path Project
El Dorado County-Community Development Agency, Transportation Division has finalized design and will construct a Class I Bikeway (Bike Path) along SR-49 from Cave Valley Road to SR-193 and along SR-193 from SR-49 to Auburn Lake Trails to provide a multi-use trail for bicyclist and pedestrian use (Figure 1: Project Site and Bike Path Limits).
The proposed project consists of an 8-foot wide Bike Path with 2-foot shoulders separated from the highways.
This Class I Bike Path will be constructed on the west side of SR-49 from Northside School (Cave Valley Road) to SR-193 and along the north side of SR-193 from SR-49 to American River Trail.
After construction the Bike Path will look like Picture 1.
Due to funding considerations, the project was proposed to be phased, with Phase 1 as the SR-193 portion and Phase 2 as the SR-49 portion. The both phases are going out to construction at the same time.
The construction contract in the amount of $1,495,007 was awarded to Sierra Nevada Construction, Inc.
Construction is expected to begin in May 2014 and continue through early fall 2014.
