The goals for this section of the trail are to be the following:

  • Comfortable  - separated from streets and motor traffic and up to 16 feet wide

  • Accessible and bicycle-friendly - hard surface suitable for bikes and wheelchairs, smooth turns and limited slopes to meet ADA requirements

  • Connected - Easy walking and biking connections from adjacent neighborhoods and destinations

  • Enjoyable - Amenities to enhance enjoyment and safety, such as signage, benches, trashcans, landscaping, aesthetic treatments and public art

  • Expandable - Provide opportunities for additional connections and amenities in the future

Since early 2014, the project team has been out in the community engaging residents and businesses. Find out where the team has been and what people are saying at XCLT in​​​​ the community​.​ Visit the "project updates" section at the top of this page for dates and locations of upcoming meetings.​

To be determined

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and 2016 and will vote on further bond financing in 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at​
