Document Description
Caltrans intends to adopt this notice of exemption because this project is exempt from CEQA under Class 1(d). The categorical exemption completed and filed for this project documented that Caltrans does not anticipate this project will result in any potentially significant impacts on the environment. The purpose of this roadside safety improvement project is to install stronger, wrought iron fencing at several locations in the Caltrans right of way, particularly around bridge abutments. Installation of stronger fencing would improve worker safety by reducing their exposure to unsafe conditions during routine inspections. In this location, maintenance crews must repeatedly repair and replace chain linked fencing that is vandalized and cut along the state right of way.
