Document Title
MEN-175 Culvert Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Caltrans Maintenance proposes to replace or repair drainage systems identified by the Culvert Inspection Program as deteriorated and beyond their useful service life. Without such repair or replacement, the roadway could be subject to washout requiring more extensive roadway reconstruction. Eight (8) culverts are identified for repair or replacement. Table-1 in the Categorical Exemption identifies the locations and the preliminary proposed construction. Culverts will be replaced as close to the existing alignment (horizontal/vertical) as possible. All work will occur from the roadway, and ample shoulder and turnout areas are available throughout the project limits for temporary material and equipment storage. All culverts are located on Route 175 in Mendocino County in various locations from Postmile 3.08 to Postmile 9.82 in the Hopland, and Highland Springs Hill 7.5” USGS quads.
