Stabilize and Repave Hearst Castle Administration Road
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Remove and repave approximately 8,000 sf of asphalt on the Hearst Castle Administration Road including approximately 500 feet of asphalt curbing. Construct a 100 by 16 feet to bedrock concrete retaining wall at the base of existing pilings located below the Grand Terrace to stabilize localized soil slumping along the road. Asphalt removal immediately adjacent the Grand Staircase will be monitored by a DPR-qualified archaeologist and/or restoration specialist and will be done in such a manner as to avoid damaging the bottom step and marble facing on the riser. Any marble that sustains damage or has been damaged by previous road work will be replaced in kind. A potentially historic stone feature adjacent the western edge of the project area, and a reasonable margin around it, will be fenced with orange "sensitive area" fencing for the duration of the project. No construction equipment will be permitted in the delimited area. A DPR-qualified archaeologist will monitor excavation for pilings and wall footings. Should any underground features be encountered, they will be avoided if possible and thoroughly documented.
