Document Description
The purpose of the project is to prevent the loss or impairment of life, health, property, and essential services. The project is needed as the Caltrans Office of Geo-technical Services has determined the slope is unstable and has a high potential of sliding with the commencement of the winter season. The slope stabilization activities must occur during the dry season as it becomes too hazardous for construction personnel during the wet season.
