Document Description
The DFG is executing Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2009-0012-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Caltrans. Caltrans proposes to widen the existing chain control turnout on SR 4 between PM 32.1 and 32 in Calaveras County, east of Murphy's. The following work is proposed: combine two existing turnouts into one with a total length of 931.8 ft and width of 15 ft in the eastbound direction of SR 4. The road will be widened to the south by filling and cutting. New drainage system will be installed as part of the project. Anticipated disturbances associated with the project include trenching and grading, stream relocation along with pavement widening to meet current Caltrans standards. This Project includes the removal of trees and understory, the realignment of the Forrester Creek channel, the deposit of shoring of fill material to build up the embankment, and pavement widening with AC. Construction of this proposed project will require acquisition of new right of way. Approx. 0.04 acre of Waters of the US (~164 linear ft) will be directly impacted. Approx 0.1 acre of riparian habitat along the banks of Forrester Creek will be directly impacted as a result of construction of the proposed project. Approx 11,772 cubic yarda of native soil will be used. Caltrans proposes to compensate for the loss of 0.04 acres of Waters oif the U.S. by recreating a portion od the Forrester Creek channel in the amount of 0.06 acres. Caltrans proposes to mititgate for the loss of riparian habitat through the planting locally native plant species.
