Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This project includes minor pavement widening and road grading for the purpose of public safety. Currently large trucks make the right turn movement from westbound Auburn Ravine Road onto northbound Bowman Road. The current configuration of the intersection does not provide sufficient pavement for this movement, resulting in truck and trailers cutting the corner, this creates an undesirable situation that damages the existing pavement and dike and subjecting the current signal location to potential impact. Minor pavement widening and relocation of the signal pole and utilities should mitigate the safety issue. This project restores deteriorated and damaged pavement as well as asphalt dike. In addition, this project promotes safer traffic conditions with negligible expansion in traffic capacity, has a total project area of less than 2,800sf, and it can be seem with certainty that this project will not have a significant effect on the environment.
