Aqueduct/Juan Bautista de Anza Trail Project
from the Moreno Valley Mall Area to Lake Perris State Recreation Area

The City has received federal monies to study the entire existing Aqueduct Trail route and develop a comprehensive plan for a multi-use (pedestrian/bicycle) trail, including addressing existing gaps/missing pieces, improving access to area schools, shopping areas, and developing street crossings at specific high-use locations. Under the direction of the Public Works and Parks Departments the city’s consultant KOA Engineering has begun working on the design. The scope consists of developing plans, including taking a close look at various trail widths, configurations, and environmentally-sensitive treatments. The end products of this phase are alignment plans for the entire route, environmental clearance, community input, and a phasing/funding plan. Ultimately, the goal is to encourage various uses and opportunities, including recreational, commuter, educational, and conservation. Public outreach seeking community input will be held in October 2015, and trail concepts will be presented to the Recreational Trails Board at its regularly scheduled meeting on September 23, 2015.  Studies are expected to be complete mid-2016.
