Funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond, the Red Line Trail will connect Braker Lane and the CapMetro Kramer Red Line Station to the existing Northern Walnut Creek trail system. The trail location is from Northern Walnut Creek Trail to Braker along the Red Line Rail.
Funding has been provided for the Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) and design of this trail. Currently, staff is finalizing the PER. The PER evaluates all the environmental constraints of the project including: topography, drainage, various soil types, tree canopy, wildlife habitat, floodplain, surrounding land uses, location of utilities, cultural assessments, critical environmental features, endangered species, property ownership, as well as several other elements.
