Caltrans 2 (Redding)
(California Department of Transportation, District 2)
Sims Road UC Replacement
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Caltrans proposes to conduct subsurface geotechnical drilling investigations to determine the type of foundation material found on site. The data will be used to design bridge foundations for a proposed bridge replacement project. The drilling will consist of four borings that are four-six inches in diameter drilled in pavement from the roadway at the Sims Road undercrossing bridge up to a depth of 200 feet. Work will take approximately four weeks to complete. All work will be confined to the Caltrans right of way.
Proposed project does not result in impacts to environmental resources through avoidance and best management practices. Proposed work will occur within the existing Caltrans Row and there will be no new ROW take.
