Document Description
The project would reconstruct a 540 foot segment of Jalama Road, widen the road and re-stripe it to move the travel lanes further north from the creek. The road would be widened along its northern edge up to 17 feet, and the travel lanes would be moved from 0-10 feet north and away from the top of the creek bank. Approximately 32,500 cubic yards of material would be excavated from the hillside north of the existing road section to allow widening and re-striping of the roadway. The new hillside would have a 1.3:1 slope (approximately 65% slope). Perforated pipe would be installed perpendicularly into the cut slope, daylighting at the new cut face, to drain the interior subsurface portion of the hillside. A new vegetated, earthen drainage swale would be constructed on the new northern roadway shoulder and would drain to existing infrastructure (drop inlet and corrugated metal pipe). In addition to the new portion of roadway, the existing 540 foot section of Jalama Road would be excavated and reconstructed, with a new metal guardrail installed along the southern shoulder of the roadway adjacent to the top-of-bank of Ramajal Creek. The project would require the removal of approximately 1.67 acres of mixed Coastal Sage Scrub and non-native grassland, 0.20 acre of pure Coastal Sage Scrub, 0.18 acre of Willow Woodland, and 0.11 acre of Riparian Scrub, including five Arroyo Willows, three Coast Live Oaks, and three California Bay trees. A draft restoration plan provided by the applicant proposes to restore the area disturbed by the project.
