Project Overview Dragoon Gulch-Master Trail Plan Project Description - What's the Vision? The City of Sonora and the Tuolumne County Transportation Council, in partnership with the Department of Public Health, are anticipating the expansion of the current Dragoon Gulch Trail by creating a master plan that will guide development of the recently purchased 65 acre expansion. This project will build on the existing and very successful 2.5 mile trail network. A community participation process including initial input, development of alternatives, and selection of a preferred alternative, will occur during the next three months.
Development may include additional natural surface trails, and short
Project Overview The Summerville trail was originally envisioned as a connection between significant destinations in and around Tuolumne townsite. Significantly, these include Summerville High School, Tuolumne townsite and Black Oak Casino Resort. An approximately two mile route would link the region's largest employment center and one of the largest educational institutions with a significant proportion of the local population. The Trail will not only provide safe and healthy transportation options, but will also help mitigate traffic congestion. Summerville Feasibility Study- Final
Funded by a grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) awarded to the Tuolumne County Transportation County and sub allocated to the City, the Vision Sonora project was initiated to provide Sonora with a plan for a more vibrant community by directing physical improvements along the Highway 49 and Washington Street corridors. Specifically, the Vision Sonora Plan addresses the following through text descriptions as well as conceptual designs and renderings: Circulation and congestion management; Parking management; Gateway features and wayfinding signage; Transit facilities, including site selection and conceptual design of a community bus shelter; Aesthetics and beautif
Groveland's Main Street Project Understanding Groveland is a small rural community that serves as one of the main gateways to the Yosemite National Park. Despite a small town atmosphere, the community has traffic issues associated with State Route 120 which serves as the main street through the historic downtown. The busy state highway has a lack of pedestrian and bicycling facilitates. During peak tourism season, traffic increases significantly and further exacerbates the pedestrian and bicycle circulation issues. The Groveland Active Transportation Network and Circulation Improvement Plan will serve as a comprehensive bicycle, pedestrian, and transit improvement plan. The Plan engaged the
This project will construct two ramps that were eliminated from the original scope of the East Sonora Bypass Stage II Project. Caltrans has approved a Project Study Report (PSR) and is moving forward with the project approval and environmental (PA&E) phase of the project.
With the completion of East Sonora Bypass Stage II in 2013, the former SR 108 segment along Mono Way has been relinquished to Tuolumne County, to maintain and manage in the future. A Cooperative Agreement has been executed between the County of Tuolumne and Caltrans to facilitate the relinquishment, and identify the project area. The Mono Way Safety Improvement Project has been developed to enhance the safety and operation of the roadway as a Major Collector.
The State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) funds capital improvement and maintenance/pavement rehabilitation projects along the State Highway System. SHOPP capital improvements projects are limited to operational and safety enhancement that do not add capacity to the State Highway System. In the past 15 years, Tuolumne County has received an average of about $7 million per year in SHOPP funding for projects. SHOPP funding is not projected to increase or decrease in the next 25 years. 2016 SHOPP - Caltrans Website
The State Transit Assistance Funds (STAF) is derived from the statewide sales tax on gasoline and diesel fuel. Statue requires that 50% of STAF funds are allocated according to population and 50% are allocated according to operator revenues from the prior fiscal year.
The Transit Development Act (TDA) provides funding to be allocated to transit and non-transit related purposes which comply with regional transportation plans. The TDA provides two funding sources: Local Transportation Fund (LTF) and the State Transit Assistance (STA).The LTF is derived from quarter cent of the general sales tax collected statewide. The sales tax collected in each county is returned to that county from where the tax was generated.
Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP) funds are distributed by the State on a formula basis to the TCTC. The TCTC then determines a methodology to distribute these funds to local agencies. These funds can be used for a variety of project types, including construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, resurfacing, restoration and operational improvements on roads classified above a local or rural minor collector. Additionally, these funds may be used for pedestrian, bicycle, and transit improvements.
Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) is a multi-year capital transportation improvment projects on and off the State Highway System, funded with revenues from the Transportation Investment Fund and other funding sources.
Every year, TCTC is required to identify any "unmet transit needs" that may exist in the Tuolumne County region before funds are distributed to local jurisdictions for non-transit purposes, such as street and road improvements. If an "unmet transit needs" is identified, a further determination is needed to establish whether or not the need is "reasonable to meet." If you feel like you have an unmet transit need in your area, please fill out the Unmet Transit Needs Form, or use the online form on the Contact Us page.
