Document Description
Caltrans proposes to remove brush and vegetation to allow access to conduct seismic testing. Preliminary geotechnical investigations are required prior to the completion of project design. The geologist will place shot-lines and geophones along sixteen lines, all adjacent to existing SR 299. The brush removal will not involve any subsurface work. The work will occur in late fall-early winter 2008. The minor shrub and limb removal will not have any impacts to any nesting birds. There will be no impacts to any BLM special status plant. No permits required.
