NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes and immediate scour mitigation work on the right and left structures of Garza's Creek (#39 0181R&L) bridges located on Interstate 5 in Merced County at PM 32.1. The September 2018 bridge inspection and evaluation revealed the over exposure of pile footings due to scour, which become very close to the critical unbraced length of the pile. The purpose of this project is to reduce the risk of bridge failure sue to scour. The need for this project is to prevent and mitigate the loss or impairment of life, property or essential public services.
