Document Description
The Project consists of minor modifications to Original Project that was analyzed in the certified Final EIR and approved by the Santa Cruz County RTP on November 7, 2013. The certified Final EIR was then adopted by the City of Watsonville. The Modified Segment 18 Project is primarily consistent with Segment 18 of the Master Plan but would consist of two minor modifications to the alignment involving proposed railroad crossings. One that is near the old train depot building at Walker Street was evaluated in the certified Final EIR. The City proposes shifting this crossing location approximately 80 feet northeast. The other proposed crossing is near Lee Road where a railroad track spurs from the main line to serve industrial uses in the vicinity. The City proposes to shift the crossing from the spur to the main line in the same area. Because railroad crossing locations would change, the Modified Segment 18 Project also includes minor changes to trail design to align with the proposed crossing locations. However, the trail alignment would occur in the same right-of-way analyzed as part of the Original Project, and only minor impacts would occur from realignment.
