Document Description
Major Amendment No. 4 Project involves removing and replacing the east span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge to provide earthquake relief access between San Francisco and the East Bay. The CDFW for purposes of this notice, has approved a major amendment to an incidental take permit (ITP) issued to Caltrans for the project pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 2081, subdivision (b). The ITP issued on Nov. 26, 2001, and amended on August 7, 2015, authorizes Caltrans to take Sacramento River winter and spring run Chinook (Oncorhynchus tshawtscha), Central Coast Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), and longfin smelt (Spirinchus thaleichthys), incidental to otherwise lawful project activities subject to various conditions of approval prescribed by the Fish and Game Code. All the species noted above are designated as either threatened or endangered under CESA. In issuing the major amendment, CDFW found, among other things, that all authorized impacts of the taking would be fully mitigated and that the project would not jeopardize the continued existence of any of the species.
