Document Description
The purpose of the project is to remove an existing barrier to fish passage at PM 39. 78 of US 101 at Dominie Creek by replacing the existing concrete box culvert with a full span bridge. Caltrans proposes to implement a fish passage improvement project on Dominie Creek to address California Endangered Species Act (CESA) mitigation requirements for the incidental take of State-listed species associated with the proposed Dr. Fine Bridge Replacement Project. The project on Dominie Creek would address a high-priority stream crossing identified for fish passage remediation in Caltrans District 1 by removing a known impediment to Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, and steelhead trout migration (i.e., replacing the concrete box culvert with a full span bridge) and improving access to an estimated 8,400 feet (1.6 miles) of habitat above US 101.
