The Project includes the development of 12.5 acres, of which 2.0 acres are undeveloped grassland and wetland habitat, to widen and rehabilitate Fulton Road into a four-lane regional/arterial street including bike lanes, sidewalks, bioretention areas, and landscaping. It also includes reconstructing driveways, filling roadside drainages, and culvert improvements at Forestview Creek and Peterson Creek. Roadway contouring and paving will primarily occur on the west side of Fulton Road. Project activities include grubbing and grading of the entire 2.0 acres of undeveloped grassland and wetland habitat, trench digging, road construction, tree removal, and other activities within the approximately 12.5-acre Project footprint. The Project will take approximately 26 months to complete.
The Project will result in impacts to 2.0 acres of California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) habitat; the Project will permanently remove 2.0 acres of California tiger salamander habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of California tiger salamander, which is designated as a threatened species under 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.
