North Fork – Madera County is partnering with the North Fork Rancheria and Chawanakee School District to apply for a competitive Caltrans grant (Caltrans Active Transportation Grant Program). If awarded, the project would build a Class-I pedestrian/bicycle path in North Fork.
The proposed pedestrian/bicycle path would extend from the intersections of Road 222 and Road 225 to the new roundabout at Road 225 and Road 228. The western end of the path (Road 222 and Road 225) would connect to a formal pedestrian path leading to the North Fork Rancheria Community Center. The path would travel across Willow Creek via a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge and connect to a path leading to North Fork Elementary School and the Mono Museum.
The survey will support the grant application process as there is no guarantee the grant will be awarded, however, the more community engagement received from the survey, the more competitive the grant application will be.

The completed project would improve safety for individuals walking, bicycling, and using other forms of non-motorized transportation to travel between the North Fork Rancheria Community Center, North Fork Elementary School, Mono Museum and all points in between. In addition to the improvement and the beautification of the downtown North Fork area.
