CV Link

Coachella Valley


Alta Planning + Design


52 Miles



Led by the Coachella Valley Association of Governments, the CV Link is a 52-mile regional multipurpose trail project that follows the Whitewater River from Palm Springs to the Salton Sea. Utilizing existing portions of paved trail, the CV Link will interconnect eight Coachella Valley cities and the lands of two federally recognized tribes to provide a continuous pathway for pedestrian, bicycle and neighborhood electric vehicle modes of “clean and healthy” transportation.

In association with ALTA Planning + Design, MSA is providing master planning, field survey, utility/right-of way research services as well as facilitating public outreach. In addition, MSA provided all GIS mapping to the planning team including obtaining spatial data for preparing baseline exhibits that depict adjacent land ownership, key stakeholders, existing and proposed rights-of-way, easements, and other constraints to characterize alternative routes and assist in determining an optimal alignment.

This project highlights MSA’s ability to provide a full range of survey, planning and mapping services for large-scale, complex, high-profile projects. It also showcases the knowledge and resources of our GIS Department as well as the working relationships we have established with every city within the Coachella Valley.
