SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — The City of Santa Cruz and Cushman Contracting will perform a critical lift to place two span beams on the Coastal Rail Trail/ San Lorenzo River Parkway Phase III/Trestle Trail Project on Tuesday, April 16, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bike/pedestrian detour will be slightly modified for this installation.

The Trestle Trail Project, which comprises a portion of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail Segment 8, will replace the existing 4-foot wide walkway on the San Lorenzo River Railroad Trestle Bridge with a new multi-use trail that is 10 feet wide. The new path will be approximately 340 feet long and connect to the existing access ramps at each end of the bridge.

The project will improve direct bike/pedestrian access between the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the Seabright neighborhood and the Santa Cruz Riverwalk levee path and downtown Santa Cruz.

The $2.03 million construction project is funded with a California Natural Resources Agency grant, Transportation Development Act funds, and City of Santa Cruz and Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission Measure D allocations.

Trestle Trail Project questions or concerns may be addressed to Ricardo Valdés, Associate Civil Engineer, at (831) 420-5198 or
