FIN - Final Document
Present Land Use
Rail corridor
Document Description
The Project is an approximately 4.5-mile new multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail proposed to extend along the RTC-owned railroad corridor from the eastern side of 17th Avenue at the western limits of the Project to the western side of State Park Drive at the eastern limits of the Project, extending through unincorporated Santa Cruz County and the City of Capitola. Segment 10 extends from 17th Avenue to 47th Avenue, and Segment 11 extends from 47th Avenue to State Park Drive. The EIR includes an evaluation of the Ultimate Trail Configuration (Trail Next to Rail Line), which includes an Optional Interim Trail (Trail on the Rail Line) for both Segments 10 and 11. Therefore, both the Ultimate Trail Configuration and the Optional Interim Trail alignments are part of the Proposed Project and analyzed at an equal level of detail in the EIR.
