  The 20th Richmond Bay Trail New Year Report!
January 3, 2019

See for the upbeat, colorful 20th Richmond Bay Trail New Year Report prepared by TRAC, the Trails for Richmond Action Committee. Richmond's Bay Trail has nearly tripled from 12 to 35 miles in the 20 years that TRAC has been working with the City of Richmond, East Bay Regional Park District and private developers to close gaps in the planned Bay Trail alignment. The Bay Trail built in Richmond represents almost 10% of the completed 355 miles of the planned 500-mile walking and cycling path encircling San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. Richmond has become the "Bay Trail City" with the trail playing an ever-increasing recreation and transportation role in the lives of those residing in Richmond and nearby communities.

The report highlights some of the 13 active projects underway to design and build the 7.5 miles of planned trail yet to be completed. As shown by the map on the last page of the report, most the unbuilt trail lies between The Plunge and the Point San Pablo Yacht Harbor. Work also is underway to install protected bikeways, known as cycle tracks, on inland sections of Bay Trail to replace substandard bike lanes.

Please share the report with your friends and neighbors by forwarding this email or by printing it for display in your home and office.
