Document Description
CDFW has executed streambed alteration agreement no. 1600-2016-0208-R2, pursuant to section 1602 of the fish and game code to Calaveras County as represented by Robert Pachinger. The project consists of placing a pre-fabricated steel footbridge, by crane on abutments 60 ft apart. The footbridge will be placed adjacent to the existing Algiers St Bridge at Murphys Park. The abutments set at each end of the single-span footbridge will consist of a pair of 18-in diameter concrete pilings poured in place. The piling holes will be excavated by an auger mounted on a skid-steer tractor. Silt fence and straw wattles will be placed on the stream side of the abutment to catch all escaping auger spoils or concrete material created by the abutment construction. The abutment construction is limited to the top-of-bank on each side of the stream. Impacts associated with the project include the removal of one tree located in the path of the proposed bridge and 80 sf of Himalayan berry plant.
