Talc City Slope Protection
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Caltrans plans to stabilize embankment slopes of five culvert systems on SR 190. Work will also include repairs to the inlets and/or outlets of the culverts. Currently the dirt slopes of the roadway experience significant scour and erosion during flooding events; increasing maintenance costs and the potential for highway pavement damage. The purpose of this project is to prevent continued erosion of highway shoulder slopes into un-named drainage channels that terminate in Owens Dry Lake. This project will replace some of the dirt slopes with concrete.
SR 190, east of Owens Dry Lake at PM 30.22, 30.73, 31.15, 31.25, 32.93
