Document Description
The Pacific Tunnel Rehabilitation Project (Project) consists of a complete replacement of the upstream and downstream portals and replacement of the existing timber invert and timber sidewalls within the existing canal tunnel using air-placed concrete. The Pacific Tunnel is part of the El Dorado Irrigation District’s (EID, District) El Dorado Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 184) and conveys water between two open sections of the El Dorado Canal. Construction related to the tunnel would include removal of the timber sidewalls, clearing of the invert, and installation of self-consolidating concrete to the final invert level to fill voids and uneven surfaces in the floor of the tunnel. Rock anchors would be installed along the floor and sidewalls of the tunnel and steel rebar and welded wire-mesh would be tied to the rock anchors to reinforce the new concrete floor and sidewalls. Air-placed concrete would be applied over the rock anchors and steel reinforcements and would form the new interior surface of the tunnel. The existing timber tunnel support sets would remain in place. Road improvements would be necessary to provide construction access. These improvements would include minor surface grading to address rutting and/or potholing within the existing footprint of Park Creek Road and the portion of the Canal Access Road between Park Creek Road and Tunnel Access Road. To allow for construction access, approximately 1,200 feet of Tunnel Access Road between Canal Access Road and the tunnel site would require re-alignment and grading to provide an even slope with a 12-foot wide cross-section and a compacted subgrade
