Bike Share on The 50 Corridor
... what do you think?
Stakeholders in Rancho Cordova and Folsom are exploring the prospect of establishing a Bike Share System along the 50 Corridor - similar to the Bike Share program in Downtown Sacramento and West Sacramento.
We're asking you to weigh in and let us know what you would like to see in a 50 Corridor Bike Share program. Take the survey below.
Conceptually, some of these Bike Share Stations would be located at Light Rail Stations along the Gold Line; others would be located at popular destinations - employers, retail areas, and restaurants. The Bike Share Bikes are intended for short trips. There is a small charge, typically $1 for each half hour. You can learn more about Bike Share by watching the below videos. You'll note from the videos that Bike Share relies heavily on technology - so bike share programs are constantly improving!
Highway 50 to South Lake Tahoe: all lanes open now
All lanes are back open on a section of U.S. Highway 50 in El Dorado County that suffered significant damage this past winter. An area of the highway near Bridal Veil Falls, about seven miles east of Pollock Pines, was damaged in February and the two westbound lanes had to be closed after the slope failed. A 600-foot retaining wall has been built to stabilize the slope and the westbound lanes have been reconstructed. The total cost of the project was just under $10 million.

Lost in Paradise? Survey Results on Parkway Signage
In August, we asked your opinions on signage on and around the American River Parkway. The TMA, in partnership with State Parks, County Regional Parks,the City of Rancho Cordova and the City of Folsom, is exploring the value of added way-finding signage to, from and along the Parkway.
96 people weighed in on how to make the Parkway safer, easier to use and more enjoyable. And, while the survey's focus was on infrastructure, the participants broaden the focus with comments on enforcement, illegal camping, and parkway users not respecting the signs that are already in place.
Highlights of the survey results:
65% said more signage along the Parkway would be helpful
37% said wayfinding signage would make the parkway safer
16% want more information at intersections
28% want more information on trail conditions and closures
26% use Google Maps to determine their Parkway ride
