RRM Design Group, in association with Kimley-Horn Associates, prepared the master plan and construction documents for the 5.8-mile Whittier Greenway – a multi-use Class 1 trail that runs through the heart of the city within an old Union Pacific right-of-way. The connectivity potential for schools, residential and commercial areas creates an exemplary alternative transportation pathway in the city.
The project included design of both paved and non-paved trails, signs, lighting, staging areas, and rest stops; refurbishment of historic railroad bridges; revitalization of vacant City-owned parcels; and landscape enhancement in a linear park style.
