Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Stream bed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2019-0260-R 1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to California Department of Transportation. The project would establish a 30 feet wide clear recovery zone (CRZ) along Interstate 5 (1-5), and this agreement concerns the two separate watercourse crossings along north bound and south bound Interstate highway 5 between the towns of Redding and Dunsmuir. Each location will have a unique treatment to bring the particular location to meet current standards for required CRZs. Primary types of activities include vegetation removal, installation of new culverts, extending culverts, and adding to embankment fill. All work will be conducted when the watercourses are dry. At PM 59.90, the culvert inlet will be extended by six feet and at PM 62.10 the culvert inlet will be extended by eight feet. The head walls of both inlets will be replaced.
