Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes an emergency Director’s Order project to replace a drainage system that was damaged in an uncontrolled fire on Interstate (I) 5 at post mile 26.3, in San Joaquin County. The fire burned through an existing High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe and the Flared End Section (FES) detached, creating a void. Recent rain has resulted in the embankment being partially washed away. The sediment from the embankment plugged an inlet FES connected to another pipe, which resulted in runoff eroding the embankment further. The scope of work includes replacing the existing 12”, HDPE pipe with an 18", Reinforced Concrete Pipe (RCP); replacing the existing 12”, Corrugated Steel Pipe with 24” RCP; installing Concrete FESs; and replenishing Rock Slope Protection. All work will occur within Caltrans existing Right of Way. The purpose of this project is to restore function to the drainage system and stabilize the embankment. The project is needed to prevent complete embankment failure and ensure safety of the traveling public.
