Document Description
The Department of Transportation proposes to overlay 1.7 miles of existing roadway from post mile 17.4 to 19.1 on State Route 36 in Lassen County. All work will occur within the existing roadway and will include 4" dig-outs, 2" overlay, repair/replacement of the metal beam guardrail, ac dike, and tapered inlets. Staging will occur within the project limits on the north side of the State Route 36/44 junction. All construction work will occur between July 1 and October 30, and is scheduled to be completed within 30 days. An environmental evaluation was performed which consisted of researching resource databases, records, and field surveys. The following was determined: No special status species were located within or near the project study limits. No impacts to biological resources are anticipated as a result of this project; however the following provisions for avoidance and minimization are required: All staging should occur in designated areas. No bridge or culvert work should occur without additional biological studies. No cultural resources will be affected by this project. Therefore, in accordance with the policies and procedures outlined in the Caltrans Environmental Handbook 2004, Column 2, Chapter 2-4.4, Caltrans has determined that a finding of no impact is appropriate because there are non-historical resources within the Project Area Limits, and there are no impacts to historical resources (s) pursuant to CEQA Guideline Sec. 15064.5 (b)(3). No further cultural resources work is required unless project plans change to include work not currently identified in the project description or to include additional areas not identified in current project plans. An initial site assessment was conducted for this project. The results of this assessment indicate there are no hazardous wastes issues that impact the project. Permits are not required for this project.
