Document Description
The project consists of the installation of three new cattle guards at two park locations: Calero (Rancho San Vincente) and Santa Teresa County Park. At Calero County Park, the project includes the removal of three H-braces on uphill side of gate and an installation of two pedestrian cattleguards (4 feet wide) adjacent to existing pedestrian gate. This will require excavation of 18 inches into the bank, reinstalling the H-braces adjacent to the cattle guard, and reconnecting/installing a barbed wire fence. Drainpipes will be installed to prevent water collecting. At Santa Teresa County Park, the project includes the installation of a 15-foot cattle guard in place of the existing 16-foot gate and the installation of a new 14-foot light duty Powder River gate and a 16-feet pipe fence or hog panel in between the new 14-foot gate and the existing pedestrian gate. Drainpipes will be installed for the cattleguard to prevent water collecting. A “pedestrian” strip will be installed on the cattle guard to allow hiking and biking access.
