- Rincon Multi-Use Trail Project EIR
- The proposed Carpinteria Rincon Multi-Use Trail would extend from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue, in the City of Carpinteria, to Rincon Beach County Park, in Santa Barbara County. The proposed shared-use trail would be 16-feet wide (10-foot wide path with 3-foot wide paved shoulder along both sides) and approximately 2,800-feet long, and would include a clearspan bridge over the UPRR alignment. The bridge would be approximately 160-feet-long, with a width of between 14-feet and 16-feet (clear width, measured inside the bridge rails). Earthwork for the trail construction would involve 104,000 cubic yards of cut, 10,300 cubic yards of which would be used for fill on-site and 94,100 cubic yards would be exported off-site. A storm drainage collection system is proposed, with new drain outlets to the ocean. The new, shared-use trail would provide a strategic addition to Carpinteria's Coastal Vista Trail that upon completion, would connect Padaro Lane to the west and Rincon Beach County Park to the east. In addition to providing critical improvements in public safety, the completion of this trail segment would provide improved public coastal access and recreational opportunities, and enhancement of nonvehicular travel alternatives to the region’s significant coastal resources.
