Document Description
DFD staff will grade the secondary access road of the SBA from MM 16.30. A 1-in to 3-in layer of 3/4 in road base will be added to keep the road from eroding and make it passable in the winter. This access road is approx 13 mi long by 30 ft wide, with some non-vegetated graded pull outs. Total area to be graded is approx 50 acres. Rock will be hauled in contractor or DWR personnel. DFD staff may install drainage culverts in areas with significant erosion. A water truck will be used to pre-wet the road to control dust as it is being prepared. A grader will be used to cut the road to grade as well as spreading road base across the width of the road. After rock as has been placed, a smooth drum roller will be utilized for compaction of the road base along the length of roadway. Staging will occur at existing turnouts next to vaults along the easement. There will be no work or staging outside of the DWR ROW.
