Document Description
The proposed project is located on Novato Creek in the immediate vicinity of the Simmons Lane Bridge on the 7.5' Novato USGS quadrangle map. The applicant proposes to modify the Simmons Lane Bridge in order to accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic by widening the vehicle bridge structure. Work involved includes the following: removing existing pedestrian/bicycle bridge and associated abutments and retaining walls and placing new bridge, abutments, and retaining walls in vacated area, pruning of existing riparian vegetation, as well as temporary installation of a sandbag dam in order to isolate the northerly footing during construction. Approximately 160 linear feet of Novato Creek's streambed, 64-square feet of wetland vegetation, and a limited amount riparian habitat will be impacted by this project. The Department of Fish and Game is issuing a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2006-0065-3 pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
