New stretch of Bob Jones trail nearly finished

acornejo@thetribunenews.comMarch 18, 2014 

The city is nearing completion on the newest stretch of the Bob Jones City to Sea Trail between Los Osos Valley Road and the sewage plant in San Luis Obispo.

On Tuesday crews, using a large crane, installed a bridge across Prefumo Creek, north of Los Osos Valley Road and adjacent to Highway 101. The bridge’s concrete deck will be poured later this week.

Dan Van Beveren, the city’s project manager, said other improvements such as fencing and a modified traffic signal at the northbound on-ramp to accommodate cycling traffic onto Los Osos Valley Road will be complete in about four weeks. Cyclists and pedestrians will then be able to catch the trail off Prado Road and connect to Los Osos Valley Road.

The $846,000 project, which began in September, was mostly funded by federal and state transportation grants. A plan to add an additional segment of the Bob Jones Trail at the city’s southern edge near the Octagon Barn is currently being studied.
