Garcia Bend Trail Existing Conditions

Figure 1- Existing Conditions

Project Description

The project will pave a 0.5-mile Class I multi-use levee top trail that connects the northern terminus of the existing paved levee top trail at Garcia Bend Park to the Pocket Canal Parkway at the City’s Department of Utilities Sump Station #132. The purpose of the project is to improve Class I multi-use trail connectivity for local and regional recreation and commuter travel. The Pocket Canal Parkway is a greenbelt with a Class I off-street trail which connects to the Seymour Park Bike Trail and ultimately the Sacramento River Bike Trail further to the north. A new Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon will also be constructed at the intersection of the Garcia Bend Trail and Pocket Road.
