The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing to conduct geotechnical drillings in order to provide data for the roadway and bridge settlement issues on State Route 14 and traffic signal foundations. The project is located in Kern County on State Route 14. The operation will involve locating and drilling 4 boreholes to a max depth of 100 feet below the ground surface to collect subsurface information. The drilling will take approximately 10 days to complete. All drilling will occur within the paved roadway, paved shoulder or unpaved shoulder and no vegetation is impacted. During the drilling, one lane of the highway will be closed where one or more drill rigs, flatbed truck (holding water, drum barrels, other equipment), and two pickup trucks will be staged inside the lane closure. At the end of the workday these vehicles will be parked at a local maintenance yard. All drilling cuttings and waste will be stored off site.
