Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is proposing to remove approximately 100 hazardous trees that are within 1.5 meters (5 feet) or less of traveled way on State Route (SR) 4 in Alpine County. Many of the trees are currently damaged or dying and/or are close enough to the road that they pose a potential safety hazard to the traveling public. The 100 trees are spaced over a 19.3 km (12 mile) section of SR 4 from KP 29.8 to 48.3 (PM 18.5/30.0), Ebbetts Pass to just beyond the East Fork Carson River Bridge.
