Document Description
Construct turn lane into the Foley Estates Winery within the Caltrans ROW and a merging lane from the winery into the eastbound lane. Construction would occur from approx 1,250 ft to the west to approx 1,250 ft to the east of the existing winery entrance. One 42" diameter culvert in the west that are carries local runoff (not in a defined drainage or water of the state) would be extended 8 ft southward and one 6' diameter culvert in an existing drainage (water of US and state) in the east would be extended 20 ft southward. Grading (cut and fill) would occur on the south side of the roadway through the entire project length, temporarily disturbing approx 0.79 acre. A staging area on the north side of the roadway east of the winery entrance would temporarily disturb 0.45 acre. Max width of the cut slope would be 33' with a max slope of 2:1 and of the fill slope would be 28' with a max slope of 4:1. Approx 0.003 acre of waters of the U.S. and State would be lost after extending the eastern culvert 20 ft to the south and placing earthen fill over it. Additional rock riprap (0.006 acre) would be placed in the eroded channel at the end of the culvert and in the overside drain into the channel.
