Route takes surface streets in Pleasant Hill

Return to Forum
I rode the Rock Island Spur from Pleasant Hill out 15 miles today and was surprised to learn that the trail doesn’t follow the railbed between the fairgrounds and HWY 7. There are signs directing users on two roads that have moderate traffic and not much of a shoulder. It appears this is because of an incomplete section with a tunnel under an active rail line. Does anyone know why that part is not complete? Maybe property ownership or that the tunnel is unsafe? I haven’t been able to find any info, but it would be ideal to have this segment included at the start of the trail.
