Public Input Sought For Transportation Plan

If you would like to see more bike paths or hiking trails in Nevada County, or have a good idea of where one should go, now is a good time to speak up. Nevada County is updating its Active Transportation Plan…

Listen to Dan Landon 1

Nevada County Transportation Commission Executive Director Dan Landon says the plan will evaluate pedestrian and bicycle needs, and prioritize active transportation projects by jurisdiction. Local governments, including the cities of Grass Valley and Nevada City, and the town of Truckee, as well as unincorporated Nevada County all get a say. Landon says you can post your ideas on the commission’s website, or comment on others…

The comment period closes October 7. The commission will then hold a public workshop on October 18 to get public comment on prioritizing projects.

The Lewis Loop (Lewis Road from Nevada Street up Lewis to Geneski then along Willow Valley Road) is a popular walking/jogging venue, up to 2 miles for the entire loop.
It is dangerous for walkers/joggers because of blind curves and spots where two cars have trouble passing. It would be a MUCH more popular path if widened and a pedestrian lane established.

Indeed, the 2-mile loop is popular w/ runners, (dog) walkers and bicyclists living on Willow Valley and Celio Roads. The foot traffic volume surely calls for widening of Lewis Road.

The Willow Valley road / Lewis Road area has seen an increase in vehicle use since being paved to the top, growing popularity with biking groups, and the use of Navigation apps for out-of-towners camping and boating at Scott’s Flat Lake. Walking into town becomes a “put your life in your own hands” moment. There is no edge to the road and n most spots and blind curves. The need for a safe walking area is needed.
