Our Preliminary Geotechnical Engineering and Geologic Review Report for the <br />Truckee River Legacy Trail – Phase 4 was dated September 20, 2016. The purpose of <br />this supplement letter is to include a soft trail portion to the overall project that was not <br />included in our previous report. The proposed soft trails will connect the Ponderosa <br />Palisades residential community to the new Class I Legacy Trail and connect with <br />existing soft trails in the central portion of the project area. A small area of soft trails is <br />also planned near the northeast corner of the project. <br /> <br />The scope of our services included surface reconnaissance within the soft trail area not <br />observed during our previous investigation, engineering analysis, and preparation of this <br />supplement letter. <br /> <br />Project Description <br /> <br />The Truckee River Legacy Trail – Phase 4 project will include construction of <br />approximately 2.3 miles of Class I paved multi-use trail. The Class I trail will continue <br />southwest from the Legacy Trail at the Regional Park, across Brockway Road at the <br />intersection with Palisades Drive and travel westward along the south side of Brockway <br />Road. The trail will veer south through the Hilltop Master Plan area near Cottonwood <br />Restaurant and traverse lands owned by the Truckee Donner Public Utilities District, <br />Truckee Springs LLC, United States Forest Service, and State of California. The trail will <br />cross the Truckee River on a pedestrian bridge and may enter into Placer County, <br />depending on the selected bridge location. The trail will connect to the existing <br />Mousehole Class I trail at West River Street. <br />
