State Route 1/101 Replace Baluster Rail with Chain-link Fence Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project proposes to replace baluster railing with barrier railing on the following four structures. The Paloma Avenue overcrossing on SR 1 in Pacifica in San Mateo County and the Alemany Circle undercrossing US 101 northbound and southbound ramps and Bayshore Boulevard undercrossing in the city and country of San Francisco. The purpose of the project is to replace structure baluster railings that are in poor condition with barrier railings that meet current design standards. The project is needed because the existing baluster railings have deteriorated and may collapse on their own. Additionally, the existing baluster railings may not withstand the impacts from a vehicle.
