Coyote Creek Trail

HMH worked with KB Home and City of San Jose Departments (Public Works and Parks, Recreation & Neighorhood Services) to design and prepare construction documents for the extension of the Coyote Creek Trail north from Berryessa Road.  A trail gateway monument and specialized pavement treatment identifies the entry to the 1/4-mile long multi-use trail.  Consistent with the City’s Coyote Creek Trail Master Plan, this portion of the trail will be a critical piece in the connectivity of the Coyote Creek Trail.  This link will serve as an access point to more than 600 residences when the north side of Berryessa Road (formerly Flea Market parking area) is fully developed.

The trail was designed along with a regional stormwater retention basin and a biotreatment basin, the first application of large stormwater treatment in the San Jose area.  The treatment area borders the west portion of the trail which, along with the riparian corridor, provides a naturalistic setting.  The east portion of the trail is bordered by canopy trees and a main access road into the parcel north of Berryessa Road. HMH also coordinated the Riparian Mitigation with HT Harvey and Associates.
