McCoy Creek Trail

Background
The second phase of the McCoy Creek Trail will provide a 3/4-mile extension of this multi-use paved path along McCoy Creek from Pintail Drive to Blossom Avenue. The 10-foot wide concrete trail will extend the completed first phase which runs from the Central County Bikeway adjacent to Highway 12 along McCoy Creek to Pintail Drive. It will include a pedestrian/bicycle bridge and potential projects amenities may include shade structures, wayfinding and educational kiosk signs, and mid-block crossing safety improvements.

The trail segment will include three mid-block crossings at Blossom Avenue, Worley Road, and Pintail Drive. The City plans to install pedestrian safety improvements at these crossings such as high-visibility crosswalks, lighting, curb extensions, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and/or speed tables.

Benefits of a Trail
The McCoy Creek Trail will provide important and safe connections for community members who walk, bike or use other forms of self-propelled transportation through Suisun and offer community members of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in active recreation. The trail extension will provide safe and direct connections to community destinations such as the Kroc Center, Suisun City library, Suisun Elementary School, transit lines, and the Central County Bikeway.

 

 

Get involved!
Using community input in addition to technical analysis and best practices in trail design, the City and project team will develop a final concept for the trail extension that considers key elements such as creek location, sensitive habitats and wildlife, topography, public safety, and aesthetics.
