Work involves vegetation removal, grading, paving, and the installation of lighting and signs.

Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
(PRD 21084 ad 14 CCR 15300.2)
Reasons for Exemption
Class 1 exemptions include the minor alteration of existing public structures and facilities. Class 2 exemptions consists of replacement or reconstructions where the new structure will be located on the same site and will have a substantially the same purpose and capacity. Class 3 exemptions consist of construction and location of new small facilities and equipment, or conversion of existing structures. The existing roadway will be improved to accommodate both vehicles and non-motorized traffic. The project will be located within the right of way and the project will result in a negligible expansion of use, as the project does not increase vehicle capacity. The action areas has been reviewed and it does not have significant values for wildlife habitat or other environmental resources. The project has no potential to have a significant effect on the environment.
