The Project is located in the city and unincorporated Orangevale, and connects several neighborhoods to seven parks, several schools and the Sunrise MarketPlace. In addition to a paved multi-use trail, this Project also includes:

• A new signalized crossing of Fair Oaks Boulevard

​ • Sidewalk, curb and gutter along a segment of Oak Avenue
​​• Drainage improvements
​​• Traffic signal modifications

​​​Project Status: ​​The project is in the preliminary analysis and environmental review phase. A design consultant firm, GHD, has been selected to lead the design, environmental clearance, and right-of-way phases of the project. ​

​Project Partners:

​This project will install facilities within seven parks owned and maintained by Sunrise Recreation & Park District  and Orangevale Recreation & Park District. ​
