Construction Management and Inspection was accomplished for the coastal infrastructure project which transformed 93 bluff-side acres of the former Georgia-Pacific lumber mill into the City of Fort Bragg’s beautiful new Noyo Headlands Park and Ka Kahleh Coastal Trail. The four-and-a-half mile long, ADA accessible coastal trail consists of an 8-foot wide paved multi-use trail with multiple 5-foot wide decomposed granite pedestrian-only side trails. It meanders along 3-miles of coastline, offering panoramic Pacific Ocean views. The project involved the restoration of 20-acres of asphalt pavement and hard packed gravel surfaces with diverse native habitats, the installation of a natural, and above ground drainage system (vegetated detention basins and bioswales, earthen berms, and culvert outfalls.) Construction of new amenities included restroom buildings, parking lots with sidewalks, and interpretive exhibits. Passive recreational field and picnic areas, cable stairs for beach access, and decorative concrete welcome plazas with unique benches were also installed.
