Road D112 North Branch Tule River Bridge (No. 46C-0004) Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Tulare County (County) proposes to replace the existing Road D112 Bridge over the North Branch of the South Branch of the Tule River with a new 36-foot wide structure carrying 12-foot travel lanes and 4-foot shoulders in each direction. The replacement bridge will consist of a four-cell grade-top box culvert with 10-foot wide by 5-foot tall openings. Project improvements would extend approximately 200 feet south to Bridge 46C-0003 and approximately 400 feet north of Bridge 46C-0004. Construction would require removal of the existing structure; therefore, Road D112 would be closed within the Project area for the duration of construction. Detour routes would be provided; however, no improvements along the detour routes are proposed. Temporary construction easements from adjacent private parcels would be necessary to complete the Project; however, no permanent right-of-way would be required in adjacent parcels, and the Project would not encroach into the nearby Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way.
