Document Description
The proposed Perris Valley Storm Drain Channel Trail – Phase 2 Project (proposed Project) consists of a 3.1-mile multi-use trail parallel to the Perris Valley Storm Drain (PVSD) Channel extending from Nuevo Road to the South Perris Metrolink Station at Case Road. The proposed trail will replace an existing decomposed granite and dirt maintenance road along the PVSD Channel with a 10-foot wide asphalt pathway for bicycling and a five-foot wide decomposed granite pathway for pedestrian use. A six by eight-inch concrete mow curb will separate the trail from the adjacent channel slope. The mow curb will be notched every 10 feet for drainage and would be set two inches above the slope grade and one inch above the trail. Landscaping and fencing are proposed at the street crossing intersection with San Jacinto Avenue and will consist of native, drought resistant vegetation along with a drip irrigation system. Removable bollards will be installed at the public right-of-way to limit access to the trail for bicycle and pedestrian uses only. When access to the trail area is required by Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (RCFCD), the bollards could be removed as needed to allow maintenance vehicle access. Appropriate easements and permits will be retained with RCFCD and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to allow the trail within land owned by these agencies. Easements or other appropriate agreements will be obtained from private property owners with ownership of the land between the PVSD Channel and the Metrolink Station. No lighting will be installed along the trail. All construction staging will occur within the existing corridor. The Project will construct a slab-bridge crossing the Metz Channel and the RCFCD channel south of the Interstate 215 (I-215) freeway, an at grade crossing at San Jacinto Avenue, an underpass below the I-215 freeway, and a bridge across the Perris Valley Storm Drain Channel leading to the South Perris Metrolink Station. Safety improvements include installation of signalized crossings and signage at San Jacinto Avenue. The Project will also construct ADA ramps to current standards and interpretive signage to educate trail users.
