NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Caltrans Headquarters Building Annex 1 has an existing accessibility ramp for individuals with disabilities that does not currently meet the federal American Disability Act (ADA) or Uniform Building Code (UBC) requirements. The proposed project would demolish the current ramp and be replaced with a compliant ramp in the same location. The accessibility lift at the entrance to the building is currently under construction and will be completed prior to the demolition of the current ramp. The lift will be available for first floor evacuations. The time duration of the demolition of the old ramp and the construction of the new ramp is no more than 4 months. The original building has been determined to be historically significant. It has been added to the California Register of Historical Resources and is also eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The Department of General Services has determined, and the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) has concurred, that the project design does not threaten or destroy the historical significance or character defining features of the building or property.
