SC Council Approves San Lorenzo River Bridge Trail 11-13-18 17:43 DC

The Santa Cruz City Council today approved a new 10-foot wide trail to replace the existing 4-foot wide walkway on the San Lorenzo River Railroad Trestle Bridge.

The Trestle Trail Project will provide 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 bike/pedestrian path will be made of steel with fiberglass decking. Horizontal cable railings will replace the current chain-link fence. It will be approximately 306 feet long and connect to the existing access ramps at each end of the bridge. 

The $2.03 million Trestle Trail Project is slated for completion before Memorial Day 2019 — just in time for the increased number of summer season bicyclists and pedestrians.

If approved by the judge, the deal with federal prosecutors will send Barris to prison for between 20 and 25 years. He could still face charges in California.
