The improvements for these parts of the trail came from Measure A funding. 

“There were cracks and other issues with the trail, so we needed to patch them to make it a smoother trail for park users,” Sacramento County Regional Parks spokesperson Ken Casparis told FOX40.com in a phone interview. 

The resurfacing at the Northgate/Del Paso and Sunrise Recreation areas was completed sometime last week, Caparis said. 

With money left over from Measure A funds, Caparis said the county is looking into other areas that might need resurfacing. 

“I don’t know if we identified the areas that are for sure going to be resurfaced, but there a couple that we have in mind including up near fish hatchery on the eastern portion of the multi-use trail,” Caparis said.
