Document Description
Project consists of widening the existing roadway along US Hwy 395 (US-395) to construct a paved 4-foot median buffer (no barrier) between lanes and widen the existing shoulders to 8 feet on both sides (northbound and southbound). The Project will install rumble strips on the centerline and shoulders (between PM 35.5 and PM 39.1), and restore the passing lanes on the northbound side of US-395, from PM 38.4 to PM 39. The project would also include extending and/or replacing existing cross-culverts and replacing drains within the project limits. Embankment slopes would be constructed at 4:1 or flatter slope. In addition, the project would eliminate existing passing zones shorter than standards, which occur between PM 36.62 and PM 36.83 and between PM 37.04 and PM 37.26 in the northbound direction and between PM 37.26 and 37.45 in the southbound direction. Project will result in impacts to 60.60 acres of Desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) and Mohave ground squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis) habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel, which are designated as a threatened species under the CESA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of project implementation.
