Electric Greenway Multi-Use Trail
The Electric Greenway Trail Project is a 2.9 mile multi-use trail between Sunrise Boulevard (near Arcade Creek Park Preserve) and Wachtel Way largely following an existing Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) electric corridor easement. 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
• Pathway lighting
• Sidewalk, curb and gutter along a segment of Oak Avenue
• Drainage improvements
• Traffic signal modifications, and
The public engagement component of this project included the creation of an informational video with interviews of project partners and footage showing the potential uses of the Electric Greenway Trail. Engagement with the community was essential to introducing the project to the community and notifying them of upcoming outreach opportunities, including community meetings, a virtual community workshop, and the project webpage.
