Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed California Endangered Species Act Incidental Take Permit No. 2081-2023-060-06, pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 2081, subdivisions (b) and (c), and California Code of Regulations, Title 14, section 783.0 et seq. to County of San Bernardino Department of Public Works. This proposed Project involves replacing the Glen Helen Parkway roadway with a cast-in-place pre-stressed concrete box girder superstructure for Phase II of the Glen Helen Railroad grade separation project for the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad lines. The bridge will be widened to accommodate a total maximum width of approximately 94 feet. Twenty cast-in-drilled hole concrete pilings will be constructed to support the bridge structure (approximately sixteen within the wash and four adjacent to the eastern bank of the wash) and driven steel piles will be used to support the western abutment. Rock slope protection will be placed at the bridge abutments for scour protection. The Project will result in impacts to 4.46 acres of San Bernardino kangaroo rat (Dipodomys merriami parvus) habitat including temporary impacts to 4.31 acres; the Project will permanently remove 0.15 acres of San Bernardino kangaroo rat habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of San Bernardino kangaroo rat, which are designated as endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
