LIVERMORE

Ribbon cutting to open Arroyo Trail officially

The public is invited to a Jan. 31 ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the formal opening of the multiuse Livermore-to-Pleasanton Arroyo Trail.

The nearly 2-mile-long trail, funded with $760,000 from the state, was built alongside the West Jack London Boulevard extension and ties Isabel Avenue and El Charro Road. It's accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists and horses and has been open for public use since December. It will eventually link the Livermore and Pleasanton trail systems. The ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. near the intersection of West Jack London Boulevard and Paragon Outlets Drive.
