Diablo Road Trail Feasibility Study

BACKGROUND

The Town’s vision to develop a continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail along the Diablo Road corridor is reflected in each of Danville’s key planning documents over the past three decades, tracing back to the Danville 2005 General Plan, adopted in 1987.  In each of these policy documents, it is clear that any potential trail alignment option would necessitate a dedication of land from the privately-owned Magee property located on the south side of Diablo Road. 

Project Update

With the 2020 approval of the 69-home Magee Preserve project, which dedicated 93% of the 410-acre ranch to public open space and trail development, the Diablo Road Trail project has been able to move forward.

The Town retained Alta Planning + Design to study the feasibility of constructing the segment of trail that would be dedicated to the Town. Specifically, Alta was asked to identify viable road and creek crossing locations, trail alignment routes and associated costs.   

A complete summary of the project history, Alta’s feasibility analysis and an in-house engineering analysis of on-road bike lanes (an alternative to the trail) was presented to the Parks & Leisure Services Commission on September 12, 2018 (available below).
