The project involves implementing a repair measure to a roadway that was damaged in January 2017 storms. The project plans to excavate unstable material and install slope stabilization such as soil nails and/or reinforced short-cerate of downhill slope that would restore the road shoulder and protect the road from future landslides. Several repair alternatives, including soil nail reinforcement, soldier piles retaining wall, and other permanent repairs for the Marysville Road site are considered. The Soldier Pile wall is the preferred repair option because of relative ease of construction and relatively small impact on the roadway travel lanes.
Note: See NOE for full details.
Location Specific: The project is located 0.03 miles east of Bullards Bar Dam along Marysville Road that is 4-miles east of the community of Dobbins in the unincorporated northeastern portion of Yuba County.
