Belvedere Seismic Upgrade Project

EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Various land uses next to roads where sheet piling would take place. Project site is San Rafael Avenue and Beach Road.
Document Description
This EIR evaluates the Belvedere Seismic Upgrade Project (BSUP or project), a City of Belvedere proposal to install sheet piling along specific segments of San Rafael Avenue and Beach Road in an area of existing levees. Soils comprising the levees upon which these two main roads were built consist primarily of intermixed sands and Bay mud layers produced from the dredging process that established the Belvedere Lagoon and levees. These layers are prone to liquefaction in an earthquake. In the event of an earthquake, liquefaction could cause the levees to deform. The proposed sheet piles would counter this effect and stabilize the levees to maintain road access for emergency vehicles.
