Chorro Creek Bridge Crossing Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project entails the construction of a Bailey Bridge over the existing Kern Avenue bridge at Chorro Creek within the California Men's Colony prison site. The proposed bridge would replace the existing bridge that has become unsafe primarily due to creek channel erosion, excess load, and structural rot. Because the existing bridge is on DOM property, repairs to the bridge would require a transfer of control and possession of the property to CDCR.

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption

Reasons for Exemption
This project would be exempt from the provisions of CEQA because with the bridge replacement, there will be no expansion of use beyond existing uses and the replacement bridge will be located on the same site as the existing bridge and have the same purpose and capacity of the existing bridge. The bridge is for the internal use of the California Men's Colony and is not part of a public thoroughfare.
