1K190: Merced 140 Culvert Replacements
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes a Highway Maintenance project to replace three (3) culverts along State Route (SR) 140 at post miles 9.74, 13.90, and 20.65, within Merced County. The scope of work includes
saw cutting and excavating the roadway to remove the culverts, installing the new culverts, and repaving the affected area of pavement. Culverts will be replaced by open trenching. All three culverts will be replaced in-kind. All work will occur within
existing Caltrans Right of Way (ROW). The purpose of this project is to replace the damaged and failing culverts. The project is needed to extend the service life of SR-140 and ensure motorist safety over these drainages.
