Murray Street Bridge Rehabilitation

As part of the state-mandated Seismic Safety Program, the Murray Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project is scheduled to commence in Fall 2013 (schedule is subject to change). 

While impacts to the Port District and its users will be significant, the City of Santa Cruz understands and has prepared an informational presentation to share timelines, scope of work and impacts of this project.

West Jetty Walkway Improvement Project (Donor Funded Project)

Project Overview

Construction of an accessible pathway along the west jetty was completed on September 20, 2013. The project resurfaced, regraded, broadened, and paved the existing west jetty trail and significantly improved accessibility along the west jetty. Funding for this construction project was provided by a $250,000 California Coastal Conservancy grant.

In addition to funding the improvement project on the existing jetty trail, the Coastal Conservancy grant also provided funding for design and engineering of a larger, donor-funded project which would create an accessible walkway from the A-dock area to the newly paved west jetty trail. The project is predicated on being donor funded. Public amenities (benches, plazas, overlooks and plaques) would be sold to donors and placed along the walkway and provide funding for the hardscape improvements. The fundraising for the larger, donor-funded project has been put on hold while the Port District focuses on tsunami disaster recovery projects.

The Santa Cruz Port District continues to maintain a list of potentially interested donors, however, a timeline for implementation has not yet been determined.

More information on the proposed donor funded project is below.
