Folsom South Trail Improvements Phase II

Project Description

The Folsom South Canal was built in the 1970s as part of the Central Valley Project (CVP). A total of 26.6 miles of the canal were constructed, running roughly north and south from Lake Natoma to approximately 1.3 miles south of Twin Cities Road (SR 104). Paved maintenance roads straddle the canal. Since its construction, the west side maintenance road between Hazel Avenue and Sloughhouse Road, a distance of approximately 14 miles, has also served as a multi-use path.

Folsom Trail South begins at Hazel Avenue and traverses parallel to the canal approximately 13.5 miles south to near Sloughhouse Road. The first 5.5 miles of the trail were patched and surfaced under CA FTBR Folsom South Trail {1) project constructed in 2017. Signing and pavement markings were placed along the entire 13.5 miles of the trail under that project.

This project CA FTBR FSTR (2) Folsom Trail Phase II is to crack seal and micro surface the remaining 8 miles of Folsom South Trail plus an approximate 1300 linear foot section north of Hazel Road. This project also includes a new pedestrian bridge over Laguna Creek and new shade structure and various other minor improvements.
