The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to make repairs along SR 253 in Mendocino County from PM 1.7 to PM 2.5. The scope of work includes stabilizing a failing slope via a soldier pile ground anchor retaining wall, roadway reconstruction, drainage improvements, stabilization of a through cut with RSP buttressing, and construction of a debris wall. This project is an FHWA Emergency Relief project that resulted from damage incurred from the storm event that began on February 12, 2019 and is included in a Proclamation of a State of Emergency signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on February 21, 2019. During the storm event, highly saturated conditions prompted movement of the roadway prism and offset cracking crossing both lanes at each end of the prism slip, resulting in the need for roadway restoration and permanent stabilization. The work proposed by this project will decrease the risk of loss of roadway due to embankment failure within the roadway prism. All work is within the operational right-of-way. The purpose of this project is to restore the roadway to pre-storm-damage conditions, stabilize the failing slope to reduce the risk of future damage and loss of a rural minor arterial route, to improve safety, and to improve the resilience of the highway. Slope stabilization and restoration of the roadway at this location is necessary to ensure the safety of the traveling public, as SR 253 is a primary transportation route in the County.
