Document Description
Construct an approximately 1,700 foot long Americans with Disabilities compliant boardwalk with viewing platforms at key locations along an existing trail adjacent to and between two Caltrans operated parking lots in San Simeon State Park to improve public access to the Elephant Seal viewing area. The boardwalk will be constructed of recycled plastic and pressure treated wood to resist decay. The entire boardwalk project will be constructed on upland fill along an abandoned roadbed and adjacent to the existing parking lots. The boardwalk will improve public access, eliminate use of a volunteer trail system, protect natural resources, and provide platforms at key locations for Elephant Seal viewing and interpretation.
