Document Description
CDFW has executed Amendment no. 1, a major amendment to Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2015-0028-R4 (Agreement), pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Caltrans. Project involves upgrading the two bridges on the old SR 41 crossing the San Joaquin River. The southern of the pair (bridge #42-0112), the San Joaquin River Bridge also known as Lane's Bridge, will require scour and seismic retrofit, and also an upgrade to the bridge rails. The northern of the pair (bridge #41-0040), the San Joaquin River Overflow Bridge, will undergo an upgrade to the bridge rails and will not require scour or seismic retrofit work. This Major Amendment No. 1: allows for an alternative method of water diversion and modifications to the allowed water diversion; provides for specific variability with respect to the order the two scour retrofit/water diversion stages can occur; includes an additional allowable method of fish recovery; removes the fish exclusion requirement; and extends the salmonid avoidance window through mid-November.
