Document Description
The project is limited to 1 encroachment (40.0740, -123.7809). The project is to repair an actively failing stream bank and associated hillslope in association with a county road. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, backfilling and compaction of fill, bioremediation and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. Roadway repair activities include reconstruction of a 400-foot lineal foot section of lost roadway and include constructing a bio-engineered streambank stabilization feature. To restore the road to pre-disaster function and capacity a bio-engineered Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) embankment will be installed. A 36-inch diameter corrugated steel riser will be installed on the inboard side of the roadway. A 50-foot long by 24-inch diameter buried culvert and a 50-foot long by 48-foot diameter down drain will be installed to drain the inboard ditch. See NOE for Full Details.
