Document Description
DWR is proposing to improve an existing access route to alleviate safety and security concerns with the public crossing the Lake Oroville Spillway bridge to access the recreational Spillway Boat Ramp and Day Use Area. This proposed access, Lake Oroville Permanent Lakeside Access Road, will be improved and constructed so it can be used for public access to the boat launch for an estimated six months of the year reducing security costs and improving public safety. The road project consists of clearing and grading the site; excavation of soils and rock; placement of aggregate base, concrete, drainage culverts, and rock slope protection; and the installation of traffic safety rails, barriers, and signage. In addition, erosion of an adjacent Boat Ramp parking area outfall channel will be repaired concurrently. This project will take approximately 4 months to construct and is scheduled to be built in the late summer to winter of 2020.
