Document Description
The proposed Project is the alignment of a Class I path from Oceanside Boulevard to Morse Street, spanning the Loma Alta Creek and running adjacent to the City of Oceanside La Salina WWTP and Buccaneer Park. The path would be 10 feet wide with 2-foot shoulders and a bioswale running adjacent to the path to treat stormwater runoff. To span the Loma Alta Creek, a 255-foot long, two-span, prefabricated, half-through, bowstring, steel truss bridge with a cast-in-place concrete deck would be constructed. Retaining walls have been designed to support and elevate the path between Morse Street and the south bridge abutment, minimizing embankment in Buccaneer Park, and for approximately 300 feet north from the north bridge abutment. In addition to providing connectivity to the existing segments of the Coastal Rail Trail north of Oceanside Boulevard and south of the connection with Morse Street, the Project would provide connectivity via an accessible ramp to Buccaneer Park, as well as a spur to a future parking lot planned to the north of Loma Alta Creek and adjacent to the wastewater treatment plant. The path and bridge would be aligned within the NCTD right of way with the connections to Buccaneer Park and the wastewater treatment plant future parking lot.
