Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
In January 2018, the Department of Transportation (Transportation) submitted a proposal for Assembly Bill 2766 (AB 2766) funding to the Air Quality Management District (AQMD) for the El Dorado Trail - Missouri Flat Road to El Dorado Project (Project). This Project will extend the existing Class 1 multi-use El Dorado Trail from Missouri Flat Road to the Town of El Dorado approximately 2.2 miles along the Sacramento to Placerville Transportation Railroad Corridor. This Project is currently under construction and was awarded AB 2766 funding for the construction phase through the AQMD program. The Board approved Agreement 2914 on June 26, 2018, Legistar 18-0869, Item 38, accepting the AB 2766 funding. The original time frame for construction completion under Agreement 2914 was December 31, 2019; however, due to delays in the receipt of the pedestrian signals, the Project will not be completed by that date. Transportation has requested AQMD to extend the completion date to June 30, 2020, with final reporting to be completed by September 1, 2020.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could direct Transportation to make changes to the Amendment and return to the Board at a later date. This could jeopardize the grant funding agreement already in place.
