2012 Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Program Award Recipients

Funding Award Recipient

This funding program provides grants to local government agencies and their partners in an effort to develop a comprehensive and effective bicycle and pedestrian network in the Sacramento Region.

Approximately $8 million was available to program in the Bicycle & Pedestrian Funding Program, and SACOG received 25 project applications totaling almost $14.5 million. Several projects applied to two funding programs, to pay for different portions of their projects, and many projects recommended for award received funding from different funding programs (Regional/Local and Community Design). The below sixteen projects applied to the Bike/Ped Funding Program, but they may have also applied and received funding from the other programs.

On December 15, 2011 the SACOG Board approved projects for the Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Program. Projects in Sacramento, Yolo, Yuba, and Sutter Counties were eligible in this round of funding. Projects in El Dorado and Placer Counties used a separate selection and funding process due to an agreement between their respective county transportation agencies and SACOG.

The awarded projects were recommended from a selection process comprised of an appointed review committee composed of professional staff and other stakeholders from the four-county area. Applications were evaluated on how well they met Project Performance Outcomes (barrier elimination, gap closure, connections to/within activity centers, increasing number of bike/walk trips, and improving safety/security for bicyclists and pedestrians), as well as meeting the Goals and Selection Considerations, as outlined in the Bicycle & Pedestrian Funding Program Guidelines.

The following bicycle and pedestrian projects were approved for funding during the 2012 funding cycle, and will receive funding in FFY 2015 and 2016. For each project, a PDF of the application is provided.
