Document Description
The California Department of Transportation approved an EIR for State Route 70 improvements including an upgrade of the existing two-lane conventional highway to a four-lane expressway and eventual four-lane freeway to accommodate increasing traffic througout corridor. Full build-out of the freeway would include four interchanges located at Striplin Road, East Nicolaus Avenue, Berry/Kempton Road, and Feather River Boulevard. The project will use the existing route as the southbound lanes and will construct two new lanes for the northbound freeway section. The project will result in impacts to Swainson's hawk and giant garter snake, which are protected under the California Endangered Species Act, requiring issuance of California Incidental Take Permit ("Permit").
