EUREKA, Calif. (AP) - California has given $2 million to Humboldt County for a trail building project along Humboldt Bay.

The Eureka Times-Standard reports that the California Transportation Commission awarded the money for design and environmental permitting costs.

The trail will run from the existing Hikshari' Trail in Eureka along the bay to Arcata.

County staff will spend the next two years conducting environmental review to help mitigate for waterway erosion and sea level rise.

Arcata environmental services deputy director Karen Diemer says the Humboldt Bay Trail has been in the works for more than a decade.

The trail will allow for bike and pedestrian traffic, and when completed will connect Arcata's central business district, Arcata High School and city neighborhoods.
