The purpose of the following paper is to provide a breakdown of the preconstruction and construction processes for a new bike path to be built on Highland Drive. Studies about the selected construction method and materials needed to complete the project are included. Soil-cement will be at the forefront as it offers the cheapest and most efficient way for the proposed new path to be constructed. The explanation for why soil-cement was chosen along with the various other ways in which it can be used are included. One concern the paper will address is the fact that the current bike path is non code compliant. To address this concern information on current code requirements and how the new path will be designed in accordance are analyzed. Charts and tables are provided directly from the California Department of Transportation website. The main concerns with this project were the feasibility and cost, both of which are addressed in the paper. Many different people and entities will need to be involved for this project to be completed in the future. As done the paper illustrates the method, cost, and schedule that are required to build a new bike path on Highland Drive.
