Gaviota Easement Access Road Repair
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Grade new road alignment for destroyed access-road used by multiple easement holders. The road was destroyed in 2016 when the DOT began work on a US 101 realignment project, under an ROE with DPR, pending a transfer of jurisdiction for 4.2 acres of Gaviota State Park. The original access road predates DPR ownership of the property and was transferred to DPR in 1967. The deed came with an encumbrance for a 30 ft wide right of way for a Southern CA gas pipeline which was already in place. The easement language sites specific use of the access road for pipeline maintenance, as well as a guarantee access will not be lost. Access to pipelines is paramount for emergency response to ruptures and leaks as well as fire clearance requirements.
