Document Description
The project site is located along the existing 1-mile-long bike path alignment within the Great Meadow in the south-central portion of the University of California, Santa Cruz camp us. The Great Meadow Bike Path is a Class I bike path (i.e., exclusively for bicyclists and pedestrians, fully separated from vehicle and heavy transit traffic) extending from Coolidge Drive to Meyer Drive. The project consists of reconstructing and widening the existing Great Meadow Bike Path to meet current California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) standards to the extent feasible within the current alignment. This would include reconstruction and repaving of the path, widening and paving of shoulders, correcting existing drainage issues adjacent to the path, and designating specific portions of the path for shared pedestrian and bicycle use.
