San Sevaine Multi-Use Trail Project Fully Funded By Additional Grant

San Sevaine

Fontana, Calif.- Residents will have a new section of the San Sevaine Trail to explore in the City of Fontana, due to a grant awarded from the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation. The nearly 3 million dollar grant completes the funding needed for the project to extend the existing trail by adding a 1.25 mile-segment. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2020.

The project will enhance the existing Flood Control District maintenance road that runs parallel to Etiwanda Channel for bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy. Safety features include lights and striping. The new segment will add to the existing trail that runs through Fontana with the ultimate trail length eventually totaling 11 miles. This path will also provide residents with a direct connection to the existing 21-mile Pacific Electric Trail.

In 2016, the project was also awarded a portion of funding by the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation and the Air Quality Management District.

The San Sevaine Trail project is in coordination with the San Bernardino Flood Control District, State of California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS) District 8, and the City of Rancho Cucamonga.

The project is part of the City of Fontana’s continuous effort to improve the quality of life and health by providing new walking and biking trails for residents to use.
