City Center Plaza

City Center Plaza City of Rohnert Park, California Coastland | DCCM provided construction management and inspection services for this $2 million project, involving the construction of a new outdoor amphitheater with walkways, landscaping, and ornamental features such as granite decorative structures, water fountains and a photovoltaic power system. The project also included roadway improvements and constructing controlled intersections for fire trucks and crosswalks for pedestrians. The new Plaza, completed in 2009, transforms Rohnert Park’s City Center area into a pedestrian-oriented focal point for the community.

McCoy Creek Trail Phase II

McCoy Creek Trail Phase II City of Suisun City, California Coastland | DCCM prepared plans, specifications, and cost estimates (PS&E) for the McCoy Creek Trail – Phase 2 Project. The City was awarded $3.5 million in funding for the project through the Active Transportation Program (ATP) Cycle 4 process. Coastland | DCCM completed the design of all project elements and prepared bid-ready construction documents in time to allow for bidding, award and the start of construction at the beginning of the 2021 construction season to coincide with the programming of ATP funds for construction. The project is currently nearing the end of construction. The McCoy Creek Trail links to the Central County Bikeway and provides a strong pedestrian and bicycle backbone through the community connecting residential, commercial, educational, and governmental uses. This linking of people and neighborhoods is important and popular with the community which sees this trail as high-value. Phase 2 of the McCoy Creek trail will provide an important connection for residents to significant community institutions and the downtown area. The core element of the project is a ¾ mile long 10-foot wide concrete Class I bikeway along the west bank of the McCoy Creek from Pintail Drive north to Laurel Creek. The project includes a 160-foot free-span bridge over the creek near Humphrey Drive capable of carrying occasional light maintenance and emergency vehicles. The bridge is the centerpiece of the project. There are three mid-block street crossings that required special attention with improvements including bulb-outs, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, street lighting, high visibility crosswalks, and speed tables to help ensure safety. Project amenities include shade structures, site furnishings, minor landscaping, bioretention area(s) for treatment of stormwater, monument entrance signs, educational kiosk signs, wayfinding signs, railings, and fencing. The Coastland | DCCM team understands the importance of this project to the community and that there was considerable public interest in the project. In addition to being popular for the valuable community connections it provides; the project also affected adjacent residents. Coastland | DCCM and our subconsultant, AIM Consulting provided highly effective public outreach, education and engagement through a comprehensive public outreach campaign. This was successful in addressing public concerns, integrating solutions into the design, and gaining overwhelming public support for the project.

Galvin Park Pathway Accessibility Improvements

Galvin Park Pathway Accessibility Improvements City Of Santa Rosa, California Coastland | DCCM worked closely with City staff to develop construction plans, specifications and construction cost estimates for accessibility improvements at Daniel Galvin Community Park in the southeastern part of the City.  The project included improvements to pathways and walkways from the eastern parking lot to the tennis court complex. The project involved removal of existing bituminous surfacing, regrading and constructing new Portland Cement concrete pathways and sidewalks. Conforming to existing paths and tennis courts was required, along with minor grading to provide proper drainage. Curbed islands with small drainage inlets were needed around several site lighting pole bases and electrical boxes to avoid removal and resetting of the poles.

Highland-Guilford Steps & Handrail Project

Highland-Guilford Steps & Handrail Project City Of Piedmont, California Coastland | DCCM provided design engineering and construction management for renovations on the Highland-Guilford Steps and Handrail Project, which did not meet current building code or ADA requirements for exterior steps. This project transformed what had been originally envisioned as an informal pedestrian pathway into a grand entrance to the Piedmont Park Cherry Walk and Tea House.  The renovation replaced the exposed aggregate concrete and rough railroad ties of the former walkway with a reconfigured concrete stairway featuring multiple landings, lined on both sides by a decorative metal handrail. For a green infrastructure component, at the Highland Avenue entrance, the sidewalk was replaced with a small pedestrian plaza composed of fully permeable pavers. New LED ornamental lamps were also installed to illuminate the steps and pathway.

Foss Creek Trail

Foss Creek Trail City of Healdsburg, California Coastland | DCCM prepared feasibility studies and performed engineering design to develop a key bicycle and pedestrian pathway along the SMART corridor in downtown Healdsburg. The Foss Creek Pathway extends from the southern to northern limits and plays a significant role in growing the community and encouraging transit-oriented development in Healdsburg. The pathway meanders between trees along the railroad tracks from the south to north end of town, tying into the Railroad Depot to allow users to transfer from one mode of transportation to another. For safety and security, a six foot fence separates the railroad from the pathway and decorative lighting was installed through the length of the project. The 10-foot wide pathway is located a minimum distance of 15 feet from the railroad centerline, with more clearance where possible. The pathway elevation is established based on the future reconstruction of the SMART tracks and the desired drainage patterns. Where necessary, a v-ditch in accordance with SMART standards was designed between the rail and the pathway to provide improved drainage conditions. Coastland | DCCM’s role also included preparing hydrology and hydraulic calculations, upgrading storm drain facilities and addressing environmental concerns. The project involved extensive coordination with Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) and received recommendations from the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
