NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project is the installation of underground electrical conduit within UPRR right-of-way to provide electricity to the railroad signals necessary for the establishment of passenger train service along this portion of UPRR track. The project would begin approximately 100 feet west of the intersection of Dyer Road and the UPRR ROW and extend approximately 4,500 feet in a northeasterly direction entirely within the ROW. The electrical conduit would be directionally drilled (bored) under Dyer Road. West of Dyer Road, the conduit would be direct buried (installed with a trencher and backfilled) within the UPRR ROW. The UPRR ROW is situated upslope of an adjacent drainage. To protect the drainage, construction is proposed for the dry season and includes the installation of straw wattles on the downstream side of the UPRR ROW for the purpose of capturing and filtering sediment laden runoff that would result from an unexpected rainfall event.
