Document Description
Caltrans is proposing a project to repair areas of eroded slopes on the previous Freeman 1 project where heavy rains have caused rills and gullies to form. Between PM 61.3864 and PM 61.9738, two benches located near the top of the west roadside cut slope will be recontoured to convey water away from the cut slopes. Water will flow from the benches to rock lined ditches that will drain towards existing culvert inlets in the road shoulder. Check dams will in placed every 100 feet on the benches to slow stormwater flow. All rills and gullies will be filled to grade with imported borrow sourced from excess material stockpiled to the south of the project at PM 56.9. Damaged or missing fiber rolls will be replaced with compost sock using coarse mulch such as wood chips. At PM 58.8713, deep gullying will be repaired, and new compost sock will be installed. Restored areas (not including the two benches) and locations damaged by construction equipment will be reseeded with native grass and shrub species. Staging will occur on Caltrans right-of-way on frontage roads located near 61.38 and 58.87.
