Document Description
The proposed project includes a paved Class I bicycle path/trail within California State property from Canyon Drive to Rio Road, following an existing fire road /sewer utility easement for approximately 1.7 miles. The trail would consist of a 12-foot wide paved path with a 2-foot shoulder on one side of the trail and a 4-foot shoulder on the opposite side. The project includes a grade-separated undercrossing at Carmel Valley Road. The bicycle trail would include storm water drainage features, such as rock slope protection, culverts and manholes, energy dissipaters, and rock-lined ditches. Lighting is only proposed above the trail within the grade-separated pedestrian undercrossing of Carmel Valley Road. The project also proposes tree removal and replanting/relocation, as well as planting locally native, drought resistant, non-invasive plants.
