Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes an emergency Director’s Order project to address damages caused by the Tamarack Fire along State Route (SR) 89 between post miles 10.31 and 19.40, in Alpine County. The Tamarack Fire started on 07/04/2021 and burned over 68,696 acres. On 07/23/2021, Governor Gavin Newson signed a Proclamation of State of Emergency for the Tamarack Fire. The scope of work includes removing burnt trees within 100 feet of the roadway centerline and trees beyond that 100-foot limit if they pose a threat to those traveling on SR-89, re-establishing drainage ditches, replacing damaged deer fencing, and installing erosion control measures where necessary. The purpose of the project is to immediately secure exposed slopes, remove hazardous trees, and rectify other damages caused by the fire prior to the upcoming winter season. The project is needed to prevent the loss or impairment of life, property, or essential public services along this section of SR-89.
