Folsom South Trail Improvements Phase II
Project description - The Folsom South Canal was built in the 1970s as part of the Central Valley Project (CVP). A total of 26.6 miles of the canal were constructed, running roughly north and south from Lake Natoma to approximately 1.3 miles south of Twin Cities Road (SR 104). Paved maintenance roads straddle the canal. Since its construction, the west side maintenance road between Hazel Avenue and Sloughhouse Road, a distance of approximately 14 miles, has also served as a multi-use path. The project will include a pedestrian bridge, asphalt patching and surfacing, pavement markings, and signage.  More info.

Free $5 to Ride with a Lyft at SacRT in Rancho Cordova
With the support of a $75,000 grant from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), the City of Rancho Cordova is partnering with Lyft to launch a pilot program to encourage Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) ridership in the City by helping to reduce transit access barriers.
The new pilot program, called "Free $5 to Ride," provides SacRT riders with a Lyft coupon code (RCFREE5) worth up to $5. The coupon code can be used toward a Lyft ride that begins or ends at one of the four SacRT light rail stations in Rancho Cordova, up to 60 times per month. The concept is predicated on providing commuters traveling to and from Rancho Cordova via SacRT with alternatives to first mile/last mile connections, reducing the need to drive alone and ultimately increasing transit usage.   More info
