Document Description
At China Camp State Park, remove approximately 3,027 linear feet of the Miwok Fire Road. Restore roadbed to natural conditions using heavy equipment to move soil from road embankment back to roadbed, fill erosion gullies, and re-contour roadbed back to match surrounding topography. In addition, convert 1,591 linear feet of roadbed to a park trail using soil from road embankment to fill erosion gullies and prepare new trail surface. Use groundcover and shrubs removed from work adjacent the roadbed as mulch to cover bare soil on the project site. The road-to-trail conversion portion will be multi-use allowing hikers, equestrians, and bicyclists in order to maintain the connection between the Oak Ridge and Bay View multi-use trails. Equipment staging and other project related activities will not occur along the first 230 feet of Miwok Road. Best Management Practices will be used during construction activities and incorporated in the project design to control erosion and sediment runoff. In the event that previously undocumented cultural resources are encountered during project construction, work will cease within 30 feet of the location of the find until a DPR-qualified archaeologist has evaluated the find and implemented appropriate treatment and disposition of the artifact(s).
