Document Description
The City of Eureka proposes to construct an approximately 1.38 mile multi-use trail along Waterfront Drive and Railroad Avenue from C Street at the north end to W. Del Norte Street at the south end (see Figures 1 and 2, Appendix A). The purpose of the Eureka Waterfront Coastal Trail is to enhance non-motorized/pedestrian connectivity, and increase public access to and along Eureka's Waterfront on Humboldt Bay. The project is intended to encourage an appreciation of the environment and historic uses of the area, increase opportunities for active living to improve public health, increase the safety of non-motorized transportation, and recover native habitat values where possible. In addition, the project seeks to initiate a transition of uses along the Waterfront Drive corridor and to improve safety and cleanliness of the area. The proposed alignment is an important piece in the statewide initiative to complete the CA Coastal Trail. The proposed Waterfront Trail and associated coastal access improvements are key elements in the Eureka General Plan. The proposed project includes surfacing/resurfacing the alignment for multi-use and ADA compliance, construction of trail heads, installation of interpretive signs, new crossings of roads and rails including cross walks and installation of crossing signage to increase public safety, lighting, fencing, drainage improvement, invasive plant removal and revegetation, and landscaping to buffer environmentally sensitive habitats (ESHA). The trail would be entirely within the rights-of-way of the City's Waterfront Drive and the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA) railroad corridor that parallels Waterfront Drive, with two small exceptions that may require easements (APN#s 003062024 and 003072006).
