Gold Line returns to the Historic District Station
The Gold Line resumed service to the Historic District Station on Wednesday after being out of service since Dec. 12, when a semi-truck transporting an oversized load ran into the crossing gate mechanism at the Natoma Street intersection in Folsom.
Bike Trail Status
While the north side of the Lake Natoma bike trail is not passable, the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail is now open from mile 3 to mile 23. Regional Parks requests that all park visitorsshare the trail as most of the decomposed granite shoulders are still washed out. Foot traffic will need to use the asphalt portion of the trail in most locations. Discovery Park, mile 0 - 3, is still experiencing flooding. To check on trail/park accessibility, visit the Sacramento County Regional Park web site. Or, you can check the parkway's Facebook Page. The foot bridge near the Sunrise bridge will be closed indefinitely until repairs can be made. The railing brackets on the down river side sustained damaged when the river levels reached 80,000 CFS. There is no estimate on when the foot bridge will re-open.

100th Anniversary Bike Ride In Planning Stages
In October 1917, Gene Hepting and "Abbie" Budd rode their bicycles from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe in 17 hours and 29 minutes. One hundred years later, El Dorado County resident Jeff Barker is planning to celebrate that ride with a yet-to-be-defined event in the September/October time frame. Barker presented the history of the ride and planning details at the January meeting of the Bike Friendly 50 Committee.
