Document Description
The purpose of the proposed project is to restore the highway to its pre-damage condition under the Major Damage (Permanent Restoration) Program. The project includes improving drainage facilities, reconstructing 360 feet of roadway, and constructing a 226-foot long tieback wall on the west side of Highway 254. The project will also include the placement of metal beam guard railing and re-striping 520 feet of highway. Caltrans has determined that total project permanent impacts to waters of the U.S. and State will be approximately 12 feet^2 (4 linear feet). The temporary project impacts to water of the U.S. and State will be approximately 112^2 (40.3 linear feet). The total disturbed soil area (DSA) for this project is estimated at 0.28 acres. The DSA is based on the footprint of the areas needed to reconstruct the roadway and install the wall and drainage system including access and staging areas. Since the impacts associated with the project are minor, no compensatory mitigation is required appropriate native vegetation. Caltrans' contractor will be required implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) for construction and post construction phases of the project. Caltrans will utilize BMPs to provide erosion and sediment control and pollution prevention throughout the project area during construction. All graded areas within the project affected by the construction activities will be appropriately stabilized and BMPs will be implemented to ensure erosion is minimized and controlled. The project is tentatively scheduled for the period from March 1, 2011 to October 28, 2012; however, work within the drainages will only be conducted in the dry season (May 15th to October 15th).
