Bottom line is that they propose to transform the Iron Horse Trail into another Commuter option. That is what we get when High Density Housing is being pushed by Sacramento and our freeways run out of room for more lanes.
Their vision is COMMUTER bicycling, as well as e-bikes and e-scooters zooming along the trail. In the details they will allow some bikers to go 25 miles per hour. And the e-vehicles currently on the trail sometimes present a hazard to Pedestrians. It would only get worse.
And the cost has not been mentioned but widening the trail and all of their other proposals will cost millions of dollars.... our tax money.

such a waste...
some day this corridor will be needed for real transit and this will only encumber further efforts.
