The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to conduct emergency work to remove a 18-inch culvert and replace with a 36-inch culvert to allow burn scar debris to flow through without obstruction at PM 2.03. An under-drain
will be installed to re-direct newly developed drainage sources to the new culvert. The project also includes slope repair by rock gabions, removal and replacement of unsuitable roadbed material and pavement. Additional work includes erosion control, traffic control, and lane stripping. The purpose of this project is to avoid the failure or threat of failure to the transportation system and to prevent or mitigate the loss or impairment of life, health, property or essential public services.
In Mariposa County, near Fish Camp, from 2.0 miles north of Mariposa and Madera County line to 2.7 miles south of Yosemite National Park.
