The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) in collaboration with the cities of Dublin and Pleasanton, Zone 7 Water Agency, and Caltrans is closing one of the last gaps in the regional bicycle trail network between the communities of Pleasanton and Dublin.

Funding sources for the $2,000,000 project include the Federal STIP-TE and TIGER II programs, Alameda County’s Measure B, EBRPD’s Measure WW, and the cities of Dublin and Pleasanton.
