Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1
Reasons for Exemption
The project is to rehabilitate an existing highway/structure to improve its seismic condition and reduce its vulnerability to earthquake events, thus improve public safety. Therefore, the project falls under Class 1 exemption for existing facilities. In addition, no exceptions apply that would bar the use of this categorical exemption. All work would be carried out from the top of the bridge and no work would be conducted in the channel. There is no seasonable possibility for a significant effect on the environment as the result of the project. Therefore, the project is exempt.
