From the River District, the Green Line to the Airport light rail extension will cross the American River into North Natomas. This alignment was determined through several past studies including the Alternatives Analysis and then supported by the City of Sacramento’s 2013 American River Crossing Alternatives Study. This alignment will result in the greatest potential ridership, provides the most direct connection between major destinations between downtown Sacramento and South Natomas, and is the most cost-effective route. The future American River Bridge Crossing will provide enhanced pedestrian and bicycle connections to future and existing trails within the American River Parkway while minimizing parkway and sensitive resource impacts.
Key destinations near the alignment:
- American River Parkway and Bike Trail
- Discovery Park
