Document Description
This project consists of removing all vegetation with stems and trunks smaller than six inches in diameter within 15 feet of the edge of the traveled way, on approximately 200 miles of County maintained roads. The purpose of the project is to provide safer egress routes for emergency evacuation, and to allow firefighters better ingress access to fight fires. The project will also provide a break in fuel continuity to aid in reducing the spread of fire. Selected roads have been chosen based on the confluence of higher density residential neighborhoods with the wildland interface. The project is scheduled for 2021 through 2022. All work will be performed within the County’s existing right-of-way.
