 Preliminary plans for the Coastal Rail Trail within the City of Santa Cruz are now posted at the following links:

Natural Bridges Drive to Rankin Aerial

Younglove Ave to Pacific Ave Aerial

Cross Sections – Schematics

Signs and Bridge

Lennox St to La Barranca Park

These designs were unveiled at the Coastal Rail Trail Project open house last week which was attended by over 150 Santa Cruz residents. Attendees spoke with engineers and planners regarding the project progress plans.

The rail trail project will be a paved, 12 to 16-foot wide multi-use path from Natural Bridges Drive to Pacific Avenue near the Municipal Wharf.

Construction of this 2-mile segment is estimated to start in early 2017 and take one year.
