Alta led trail design and outreach for the Gage Canal Multi-Purpose Trail—a 2-mile active transportation and recreational green space over the existing Gage Canal.
The trail offers local residents recreational opportunities and connections to the Box Springs Reserve, and provides a continuous off-street connection from Palmyrita Avenue to Blaine Street. It is comprised of a combination of Class I asphalt concrete (AC) and natural surface trails within an existing City-owned water utility easement.
The trail corridor will be landscaped with native and climate appropriate trees and shrubs that will provide ecologic benefits while beautifying and cooling the space, and will feature additional amenities such as entry plazas, trailside seating, bicycle racks, interpretive signage, and solar lighting.
Project tasks included site inventory and analysis, environmental services (CEQA), community outreach, final design, and construction support services. Alta provided project management, outreach, civil engineering, and landscape architectural design services.
