Groundbreaking Ceremony Held For Safe Routes To School Trail

View video of groundbreaking for new pathway along Highway 12

Suisun City has taken another big step in making travel to and from school safer for kids. The city held its much anticipated groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the Grizzly Island Trail on Tuesday. The trail is part of the city’s effort in a “Safe Routes to School” initiative.

The campaign is a national one and, in Suisun City, has had two specific components. The first was the placing of speed radar signs near Suisun and Dan O. Root Elementary. The second portion of Safe Routes to School is a pedestrian and bicycle trail that will link a path between Grizzly Island Road to Marina Boulevard on the south side of Highway 12. The path would allow for an easier and safer way for children go to and from the areas near and .

I saw them out there and was hoping that was what they were assembling for. I was afraid they had given up on that trail. It will be great not to have to worry about the drivers on Sunset Ave and on Village Drive running you down because they are looking left when pulling out onto 12.

Yes, this is a much needed trail.

Even though my son won't be at Crystal next year, we are very much looking forward to this. What a great way to get from Lawler Ranch and downtown! Maybe this will encourage more foot and bicycle traffic in the City, too. :)

So happy to hear about the trail going forward. We live in Victorian Harbor and have been looking forward to when we can ride our bicycles from our neighborhood to Grizzly Island Road and through the Suisun Marsh without having to cross Highway 12. :) Does anyone know what the anticipated schedule for the project is?
