NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Project involves constructing a 5 ft wide decomposed granite bicycle and pedestrian trail using the CA Conservation Corps. Most of the approx. 2400 ft. long trail will be built by hand although a short, steep section within the Caltrans ROW will be constructed using a small trail dozer. A soil hardening additive will be used in the steeper section to help maintain trail integrity. Safety railing will be installed along a scenic overlook area, old ROW fencing will be removed, and new ROW fencing will be installed. Two small hand built wooden bridges will be installed across roadside drainage ditches.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
General Rule exemptions do not fall within an existing exempt class, but it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity may have a significant effect on the environment. A portion of the trial runs along a bluff above the Sacramento River which is considered a sensitive resource area. However, no significant impacts to the river or the surrounding environment are expected to occur given that all work will occur during the dry summer months, the trail will be built by hand and in previously disturbed or modified landscapes, no native trees will be removed, and no endangered species or other sensitive resources will be impacted by the project. No significant effect on the environment.
