Document Title
Butano Canyon Bridge Replacement Project (Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600- 2020-0107-R3)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project is limited to replacement of an existing residential bridge structure. The existing bridge is a 100-foot-long three-span bridge on Spruce Lane, constructed in 1952 with redwood spanners. The bridge connects residential homes to Spruce Lane. The bridge is deteriorating due to a failing deck and unstable foundation. The project would remove the existing deteriorating bridge deck and exposed abutments with a crane and excavator, construct a retaining wall on either end of the bridge outside of the stream channel, relocate a power pole and propane tank, remove one California nutmeg tree, realign a section of Spruce Lane, and reconstruct a single-span modular bridge. The bridge replacement would have a similar footprint to the current bridge.
