Arcata Rail with Trail Connectivity Project

Blackburn Consulting performed a geotechnical investigation for 4+ miles of new trail along the old Northwest Pacific Railroad alignment adjacent to the east side of the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary.  This project includes several new bridge structures, cut/fill sections and elevated walkways across bay sections underlain by deep, compressible soils in shallow, brackish groundwater conditions and in a high seismic zone.
