Located along the coast in Moss Beach, California, the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve Coastal Trail and Beach Access Improvements Project has focused on improving public access to the tidepools and coastal bluffs within the reserve.WRA landscape architects and biologists provided environmental services in support of the proposed trail and beach access improvements, and existing sensitive habitats were avoided to the maximum extent possible in the design.As the lead consultant, WRA managed the team of professionals including hydrologists, surveyors, geotechnical engineers, and archeologists to design the trail and beach access projects.Construction of the Coastal Trail improvements began in 2012 and will provide universal access between the Reserve and the surrounding neighborhood.In addition, a new pedestrian bridge along the trail was designed to span the entire width of San Vicente Creek and to protect and enhance the sensitive aquatic resources below.
