The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2019-0190-R3, pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit District. The project is limited to the construction of approximately 3.5 miles of passenger rail service from the existing train station immediately south of Airport Boulevard in Santa Rosa to 0.45 miles northwest of Windsor River Road in the Town of Windsor, along the Northwestern Pacific Railroad rail corridor. Construction activities associated with the project include rehabilitation of the existing track, improvements to grade crossings, replacement and repair of various bridges, replacement of drainage culverts, installation of new culverts, construction of one new station platform and existing facilities, installation of a new signal system, installation of safety structures within a portion of the right-of-way, and construction of approximately 2 miles of non-motorized pathways. The three project components impacting streams are trackwork, bridge replacement, and culvert replacement and installation. Approximately 29 riparian trees, 6 inches in diameter at breast height and larger, will be removed as part of the project. They include the following species: valley oak (Quercus lobata), sandbar willow (Salix exigua), red willow (Salix laevigata), and arroyo willow (Salix lasiolepis) (Exhibit D). In total, the project will permanently impact approximately 21,868 square feet along 1,784 feet of streams.
