Sentinel staff report–
The future 2.9-mile trail, formerly known as the Electric Greenway Trail, was unanimously renamed by the Citrus Heights City Council on Thursday night.

The council selected from 3 top names, narrowed down by a naming committee from the original 26 community submissions. The name will be “Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail.” Runners up were “Electric Greenway Trail,” and “Solid Roots Trail.”

The trail was tentatively referred to in project documents and grant requests as the “Electric Greenway” in reference to where the trail will travel: largely following an existing SMUD easement under power lines. The trail will travel from Wachtel Way through a residential neighborhood, continue over to Woodside K-8, and then pass through several parks before concluding in the Sunrise MarketPlace shopping area.

The project also includes a new signalized crossing on Fair Oaks Boulevard, pathway lighting, sidewalk and curb installation on a portion of Oak Avenue, drainage and landscaping improvements, as well as traffic signal modifications.

Construction of the trail is expected to begin next year. For more, see article: Planning phase for new 2.9-mile trail in Citrus Heights nears $1M cost
