Document Description
Caltrans has prepared a Draft Initial Study with a proposed MND for a proposed fish passage improvement project on SR 96 in Siskiyou County near Seiad Valley. The proposed project will improve fish passage on Fort Goff Creek by replacing a 15-foot diameter structural steel plate culvert with a concrete single span bridge structure and restore approximately 200 feet of stream channel. The proposed project will also conform a 720-foot section of SR 96 with the proposed bridge structure, which would include widening existing lanes and roadway shoulders, minor roadway realignment and installation of metal beam guardrail. The project will require right of way acquisition, tree removal, soil excavation, a temporary stream diversion, and temporary traffic detour during construction.
