Repair of the Bell Mooney Road crossing of Woods Creek including:
1. Remove imported rock and concrete pieces from the creek downstream of the ford.
2. Remove portion of concrete ford from area of proposed box culvert. Replace the existing 18" corrugated steel pipe with an 8' span cast-in-place reinforced box culvert which will provide 3 side box culvert with a natural stream bed bottom with a water channel opening of approximately 20sf.
3. Construction 9" thick reinforced concrete slab over corrugated steel decking pan, resulting in a new deck 9" higher than existing. The upstream and downstream footings will be battered, 2'6" thick at a depth where it can be pinned to bedrock and 1' thick at the top. A 9" high curb will be constructed on the upstream footing to prevent vehicles from leaving the deck. The slab will measure 64' on the upstream side and 60' on the downstream side and will be 17' wide.
4. An existing 6" water line which is buried immediately downstream of the existing ford may be re-installed if its existing location is incompatible with the project.
After reviewing the project and its setting, the Environmental Coordinator for the County of Tuolumne has determined that the project is categorically exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to Section 15301 of the State CEQA Guidelines because the project consists of restoration of a damaged road. A Streambed Alteration Agreement will be obtained from the California Department of Fish and Game prior to any work in Woods Creek and measures will be included in construction practices to prevent damage to known cultural resources in the area.
