Present Land Use
Point Reyes National Seashore covered in NPS General Mgmt Plan (1980); primarily "Pastoral Landscape Management"

Document Description
Proposed improvements, initially evaluated in an Initial Study in 2015, consist of resurfacing, restoring, and rehabilitating SFDB in a manner that will closely follow the existing roadway to minimize impacts to the naturak nterrain. In general, the project would widen the roadway 1 to 6 feet to maintain a consistent 24-foot width with two 11-foot travel lanes and 1-foot shoulders. Additional improvements evaluated under the subsequent initial study in 2018 include replacing the existing culverts under SFDB at Schooner Creek with a single-span bridge and restoring and stabilizing approximately 710 feet of SFDB that has severly eroded. To compensate for permanent wetland impacts as a result of roadway improvements, part of the parking lot at Brakes beach would be restored to a wetland, and two ponds would be constructed within Home Ranch to provide California red-legged frog aquatic breeding habitat. Actions at Drakes Beach and Home Ranch extend beyond the original study area analyzed in 2015
