The Redwood City General Plan specifically calls out the importance of this bicycle path route:
A key opportunity for improving connectivity among neighborhoods west of El Camino Real is the Hetch Hetchy easement, which has two paths across Redwood City. Redwood City will vigorously pursue options to create pedestrian and bicycle paths along the easement, as well as connections to other pedestrian‐ways and bikeways citywide
It further calls on the City to:
Develop bicycle paths along the Hetch Hetchy easement and the corridor parallel to Alameda de Las Pulgas rights‐of‐way.
The Plan includes details on the recommended design and routes for bicycle paths.
