Document Description
Caltrans proposes to widen SR 70 from a two-lane highway to five-lane facility with a paved center two-way-turn lane (TWTL) median for approximately 4.0 miles north of the existing Honcut bridges. At Honcut Creek, a new two-lane bridge structure will be constructed to span the flood plain over the levee prism and provide additional lanes of southbound traffic. The existing bridges will be converted to northbound-only traffic. The project proposes to acquire 28.7 acres of right of way and proposes to provide mitigation for riparian take within the levee prism (approximately 1 acre) and for greenhouse gas effect/offset as a result of highway widening and increased capacity.
