The Project consists of constructing a multi-functional corridor between East Stockton Boulevard and Camden Park in the City of Elk Grove. The maintenance access road alignment begins at East Stockton Boulevard, approximately 750 feet south of the intersection of East Stockton Boulevard and Cantwell Drive. The alignment follows a west-east orientation before crossing Whitehouse Creek. After this crossing, the alignment turns south and parallels the eastern bank of Whitehouse Creek before turning southeast and crossing Laguna Creek at two locations before terminating at the existing Laguna Creek Trail system near Beckington Drive and White Peacock Way. During the final design and right-of-way phases of the Project, the alignment may traverse further south along Whitehouse Creek before turning southeast to cross Laguna Creek.
The Project includes construction of a 10-foot-wide paved surface (no pavement striping) with 2 feet of unpaved shoulders. Pre-fabricated steel or concrete bridges would provide necessary access across Laguna and Whitehouse Creeks. The Project would be constructed in phases, dependent on funding, with the last phase of the Project converting the paved maintenance access road into a Class 1 multi-functional trail corridor connection between East Stockton Boulevard and Camden Park, with pavement striping and trail amenities, such as benches and trash containers. This last phase of the Project would complete a gap within the trail system in accordance with the City’s Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan.
Additional Project features would include construction of floodway excavation areas to offset the floodplain encroachments from the maintenance road/multi-functional trail and fencing to prevent pedestrian incursion beyond the multi-functional corridor. Right-of-way acquisitions and temporary construction easements are needed where the multi-functional corridor passes through privately-owned parcels and will be obtained during final design of the Project.
