Document Description
The purpose of the proposed project is to minimize the likelihood of manmade features entering the South Fork Eel River. The project includes: removal of the roadway and eight structures; rock fall mesh; brugg netting; metal beam guard rail; fencing; culverts; and k-rail. Roadway removal will require re-grading the old roadbed to allow the natural drainage and slope stability. In addition, Caltrans is required to revegetate approximately 9 acres (within the bypass project area and decommissioning project area) to compensate for impacts to vegetation as part of the Confusion Hill Bypass Project.
