Document Description
This proposed project involves repaving the roadbeds, and upgrade guardrails, bridge rails, and drainage facilities. This project will construct two temporary detour lanes and crossover lanes in the existing median for traffic handling during construction. All existing bridges and/or drainage crossings, on the eastbound and westbound direction, will be widened towards the median. After the completion of construction, the median will be hydroseeded for erosion control and vegetation restoration. The Project will result in permanent impacts to 169.53 acres of Agassiz's desert tortoise ( Gopherus agassizil) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of Agassiz's desert tortoise, which is designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
