City seeks to link bike traffic between Land Park, Curtis Park

A bike lane in downtown Sacramento.

The Sacramento City Council will consider approving a contract Tuesday for a project which aims to link bicycle and pedestrian traffic between Land Park and Curtis Park.

The Sacramento City College Bicycle/Pedestrian Improvements Project will create a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly route on 12th Avenue between 23rd Street and Panther Parkway, according to a city staff report.

The route will link with the light-rail station, and eventually, with Sacramento City College via a pedestrian bridge that will extend from the parking-garage area on the college campus, over the train tracks and into the proposed Curtis Park Village development, according to the report.

A bike lane will also be painted on 12th Avenue to "to accommodate westbound bicycle traffic and eliminate the bicycling bottleneck," the report says.

The cost of the portion of the project that City Council will consider Tuesday will be $350,000, though none of that, according to the report, will come from the general fund.
