PASO ROBLES, Calif. — The City of Paso Robles has updated its trail closures for the Centennial Trail Creek Repair Project to allow student access to local campuses.
The Centennial Creek Rehabilitation Project will begin August 15, beginning the rehabilitation of the Centennial Creek Corridor that connects Lana Street to Navajo Avenue, ultimately connecting to the Salinas River.
The lower portion of the trail, from Nickerson Drive to Navajo Avenue, will be closed August 22 through October 31. The upper portion of the trail from Nickerson Drive to Lana Street will be closed until September 30, 2023.
While the trail is closed, crews will work on grading specific areas of the creek to widen the channel to allow water to collect and reduce scour rates, creating cobble beds to reflect a natural creek system, by removing debris and rocky landscapes and planting a variety of native, fire-resistant plant species around specific creek areas.
“For many years, this network of creeks has suffered from significant erosion, bank destabilization, damaged culverts and habitat degradation,” city officials said. “The Centennial Creek Rehabilitation Project aims to improve stream functionality, hydrology (water flow velocity) and increase natural habitat.”
