Willits Rail with Trail Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Document Description
The Project would construct an approximately 1.6-mile Class I Trail (pedestrian and bicycle trail) from East Commercial Street to East Hill Road within the Great Redwood Trail Agency (formerly the North Coast Railroad Authority) right of way, within the City limits. Installation of this 1.6-mile trail would improve access and safety for pedestrian and bicycle users as well as create opportunities for nature study and recreation. The trail would include at-grade bridge crossings over Broaddus, Baechtel and Haehl Creeks, lighting, signage, benches, landscaping, and other features related to public access, and may include enhancements to existing street crossings. The trail would be a paved pathway Class I facility, approximately ten-feet wide (five feet per travel lane) with 2-foot shoulders. The Project would not conflict with the Skunk Train rail excursion or other railroad use. Small areas of inactive track may be removed, primarily associated with grade crossings or inactive spurs.
