NOD - Notice of Determination

Document Description
The Project is a 0.79 -mile paved bicycle/pedestrian trail along an existing rail line within the City from the intersection of California Street and Bay Street, within La Barranca Park, near the Neary Lagoon Wastewater Treatment Plant to Pacific Avenue. The Project alignment would create a paved pedestrian and bicycle path that would run parallel to the existing rail. Trails within the Project alignment would be approximately 12 feet wide. The edge of the alignment would range from 8.5 feet (in constrained areas) to a maximum of 65 feet 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). This is the second phase of development of Segment 7, and is described as Phase II.
