Document Description
The County proposes modifications to the vertical profile of the eastern portion of Phase 1B. Phase 1A of the Project, which realigns SR-49/Diamond Road, is not affected by the proposed modification. Phase 1B will construct a new four-lane arterial roadway from Missouri Flat Road to a new T-intersection with the SR-49 south of Bradley Drive. During design of Phase 1B, Transportation determined that modifications to the vertical profile of the eastern portion of Diamond Springs Parkway would provide benefits that include reduced right-of-way acquisition and construction costs. The modified vertical profile would be similar to the existing ground surface grade, resulting in a vertical profile as much as 15 feet lower than the approved Project, would require less fill material, would reduce the footprint of fill slopes, and would eliminate the Bradley Drive/Throwita Way intersection required as a result of fill placement needed for the approved Project. An intersection could be maintained with a slight northern realignment of the west end of Bradley Drive. The lower vertical profile alternative was determined to be Environmentally Superior Alternative in the 2011 EIR for the Diamond Springs Parkway Project.
