Document Description
The project is a 1.36-mi paved bicycle/pedestrian trail along an existing rail line within the city from Natural Bridges Dr on the west, near Moore Creek, to the intersection of California St and Bay St on the east, near La Barranca Park. The project alignment would create a paved pedestrian and bicycle path that would run parallel to the existing rail. A second phase of the trail is planned as part of a later project. Trails within the project alignment would be approx 12-16 ft wide. The edge of the alignment would range from 8.5 ft (in constrained areas) to a max of 45 ft from the rail centerline. The project is the central portion of segment 7, one of 20 segments within the proposed 32-mile Coastal Rail Trail alignment and the broader Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail Network (MBSST Network).
