SR 118/VEN-118 Slope Restoration Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Document Description
This project proposes to restore damaged slopes along both directions of State Route-118 (SR-118) from Sand Canyon Road to 0.2 mile east of Balcom Canyon Road in Ventura County. The slope along the right shoulder of the eastbound (EB) direction is a cut slope leading to the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks which run parallel and beneath the SR-118 roadway. In the westbound (WB) direction, the cut slope is the southern bank of an existing channel. The work in the EB direction includes constructing soldier pile walls, concrete barriers on moment slabs, paving dirt shoulders, spanning an existing culvert crossing under SR-118 (Long Canyon Creek Bridge) to match the continuous width shoulder at the soldier pile walls, constructing Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) dikes and upgrading the existing Metal Beam Guard Rail (MBGR) to new standard Midwest Guardrail System (MGS), where needed; all features are designed to channel the water away from the cut slope of the UPRR tracks. The work in the WB direction includes placing concreted rock slope protection to repair severe erosion along an existing drainage channel bank.
