Document Description
Yuba County’s Public Works Department seeks environmental approval for the Goldfields Parkway and Interceptor Canal Project which consists of constructing a connection of the existing portion of Goldfields Parkway located at North Beale Road, east of Yuba College and then northerly to Hammonton-Smartsville Road. The proposed roadway will consist of two paved travel lanes twelve feet in width and a six foot wide sidewalk in each direction. The roadway will be delineated by a landscaped median. The proposed roadway project would provide relief to Griffith Avenue, Brophy Road, and other small residential streets. Adjacent to the proposed roadway is a complimentary proposed drainage basin, known as the Eastside Interceptor Canal, with a capacity of 100 acre-feet that is critical to solving existing issues in the nearby Linda Drain. This is the second phase of the eastside interceptor canal and will include two 60-inch culverts, one 36-inch culvert, and one outfall structure to collect water from Hammonton-Smartsville Road and East Linda. Drainage from the adjacent roadway will be captured in drain inlets and conveyed to the basin using 18-inch storm drains. Traffic control will be required at the connections to North Beale Road and Hammonton-Smartsville Road; however, these roadways will remain open throughout construction. During construction activities, the selected contractor will be responsible for establishing and maintaining traffic control, which may include, but is not limited to, signage and flaggers to control traffic through the project area. All traffic control will be required to adhere to applicable standards; including those set forth in the Yuba County Code and the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CAMUTCD). No long-term effects related to property or roadway access are expected. All of the proposed improvements will occur within existing right-of-way. Some of the existing utility facilities are close to the proposed drainage improvements and may require minor relocation. This project was evaluated and approved in the Yuba County 2030 General Plan Environmental Impact Report. The Eastside Interceptor Canal was also evaluated in the South Yuba Drainage Master Plan. On June 7, 2011, the Yuba County Board of Supervisors adopted a Final EIR for the Yuba County 2030 General Plan (SCH: 20100062054). This project, and its environmental impacts, was evaluated in the Environmental Impact Report prepared for the 2030 Yuba County General Plan and therefore no further environmental review is required.
