New Arnold bike trail to move ahead

By Mike Morris / The Union Democrat

Plans are underway to construct a new paved trail this summer in Arnold.

Known as the Arnold Rim Trail Cedar Center Bikeway Connection, the project will connect county-owned property at Pine Drive and Oak Circle while traveling across Stanislaus National Forest land.

To fulfill environmental mitigation measures, a Forest Service biologist has conducted spotted owl surveys and will be conducting nesting surveys for the northern goshawk through June.

Construction is expected to start in July and be complete by late summer, said Deborah Mullen, public works analyst for Calaveras County.

Last fall, the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors approved an agreement with Tuolumne-based Peterson Excavation Inc., for the construction of the project. The cost is $138,955 and will be covered by federal and state "transportation enhancement funds."
