The project will utilize hand crews create two conditions of modified fuels; a shaded fuel break in woodland formations and a residual mosaic in brush formations on up to 25 acres within the Summit Road (Highway 35) corridor. The road corridor is defined as having a maximum width of 30 feet from the edge of the paved surface along both sides of the road. Several areas of the road will not be treated due to steep slopes and cut banks. The objectives will be to disrupt the horizontal continuity of surface fuels, vertical continuity resulting from latter fuels, and increase shrub and understory crown spacing.
