CAL-49 Emergency Culvert Repair

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes an emergency project to replace an existing 18-inch corrugated metal pipe culvert crossing beneath State Route 49 south of Angels Camp in Calaveras County. The culvert has failed, and a void has formed below the southbound lane of the highway. Immediate replacement of the pipe is needed to prevent further damage to the roadway and to ensure public safety. The culvert would be removed by saw cutting the pavement and excavating the fill prism around the pipe. A new 18-inch reinforced concrete pipe with rubber gasketed joints would be installed, and a replacement headwall would be constructed at the outlet. Construction would occur in previously disturbed areas within existing Caltrans right of way. The purpose of the project is to replace the failed culvert to prevent further damage to State Route 49. The proposed project is needed to prevent imminent failure of the highway and to ensure the safety of the traveling public.
