In 2018, Placer County and the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency finalized an update to the Placer County Regional Bikeway Plan. The Plan focuses on improving bikeways throughout the County by developing a connected and comfortable network. Improving connections for bicyclists provides additional choices for traveling, provides new links to key destinations and communities, and can help support active lifestyles through increased recreation.
The Plan develops a regional system of bikeways that connects the six incorporated cities and numerous unincorporated community areas. The Plan focuses on on-road bicycle facilities and key regional shared use paths. The forthcoming Parks and Trails Master Plan will identify recommended off-road shared use paths and unpaved trails.
The Plan identifies the planned bicycle network, including locations, facility type, and priority of new bikeway facilities. These improvements have been identified to promote bicycling activity and use across the Placer County region. The planned network was developed based on a review of existing conditions, public comments, as well as the needs and demands for bikeways across varying contexts of the region.
