Measure M Projects: Bicycle and Pedestrian

Copeland Creek Trail

Make existing path along Copeland Creek and Laguna de Santa Rosa from Redwood to Hinebaugh Creek (at Rohnert Park Expressway), and Commerce Blvd to the eastern city limits useable for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Additional Project Details:
The Copeland Creek Bike Trail project is a 1.2-mile paved Class I bike path along Copeland Creek west of Highway 101, between Redwood Drive and Rohnert Park Expressway, and between Commerce Boulevard and the eastern city limits in Rohnert Park.

Phase 1
Phase 1 included asphalt paving at the existing Sonoma County Water Agency service road along the north side of the creek and rehabilitation of an existing Class I path in a second location. The path is now suitable for bicycles and a wide range of pedestrian uses, including wheelchairs, strollers, skateboards and walkers.
Project Status / Schedule
Phase 1 was constructed in summer of 2008. The Notice of Completion was filed on November 25, 2008. The trail/path is open for use.

Phase 2
The second phase of the Copeland Creek Trail project reconstructed 4650 LF of the most deteriorated sections of the most well-used bicycle and pedestrian path in Rohnert Park, including sections adjacent to senior housing and multi-family housing, and most notably along the high school and up to Sonoma State University. The funding was used as matching funds for Transportation Enhancement funding. The City expended the funds in the Design phase and was able to leverage that funding for federal Transportation Enhancement and local funds for construction.
Project Status / Schedule
Phase 2 was completed in November 2012. The trail/path is open for use.
