Document Description
The project approved by the Department of Fish and Game involves the issuance of an incidental take permit (ITP) under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). Issuance of the ITP authorizes take of Mohave ground squirrel (Spermophilus mohavensis), a State listed threatened species, in connection with the widening of State Route 138 from 146th to 165th Street East, and replacement of existing bridges at Big Rock Wash to a standard one span bridge with 4 lanes and a median. The ITP also covers other activities by Caltrans associated with construction of the project, including paving roadways, widening roadways one mile east and west of the bridge, grading and installation of related drainage facilities, and periodic grubbing of related roadway shoulders so that vegetation does not exceed three feet. In total, implementation of the project will result in impacts to 225.1 acres of potential habitat for the Mohave ground squirrel. The ITP includes measures to minimize and fully mitigate all impacts of the taking of Mohave ground squirrel, including the acquisition and preservation in pertuity of 225.1 acres of habitat for the species.
