The new Castroville Bicycle/Pedestrian & Railroad Overcrossing Bridge is a bicycle and pedestrian bridge crossing over the railroad tracks and a new bicycle/pedestrian path parallel to Highway 156. The bridge will provide students a much safer route to school and connect downtown Castroville to Elkhorn Elementary School and North Monterey County High School. It also links various portions of the existing multi-modal transportation infrastructure improving access for all bicyclists and pedestrians from the Monterey Peninsula, Salinas to Watsonville, to Santa Cruz County.
