This project won the California Transportation Foundation 2011 Pedestrian/Bicycle Project of the Year Award and the 2011 APWA Sacramento Chapter Best Transportation Project, $500k to $2 million category.
Lumos provided basemapping, alternatives analysis, preliminary and final design, and construction documents for 4,000 feet of recreational trail on the south side of the Truckee River east of the Town of Truckee. The trail traverses varied terrain including steep side slopes and dense trees, and is the latest phase of a proposed three-mile segment of trail. Several alignment alternatives were considered to minimize disturbance to wildlife habitat and extensive cultural resources. The project was complex due to the extensive cultural resources in the corridor and involvement from multiple agencies, including the Town of Truckee, the Truckee-Tahoe Sanitation Agency, the Truckee Sanitation District, Caltrans, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board.
