I agree, it should have been done 10 years ago. It really opens up the riding options in the east Tri Valley. Lower Isabel, from Jack London north, is essentially done. South from that intersection, I think that's a 2014-5 completion date.
Apparently, they created a right of way for Arroyo Mocho to go from the airport on JL up to Stanley (and areas north) as a protected trail, but I haven't ridden it between Jack London & Stanley. I passed the entrance, it looked inviting. In the old days it was dirt road, don't know if it's 100% paved now, and Google Maps is way out of date. If that section is road bike friendly it means you can ride from the vineyards on Mines Road to the airport on a quiet trail, mostly along the creek, sorta like the Iron Horse. Something to check out.
