The primary purpose for the project is to improve drainage facilities along SR 70, which will prevent expensive roadway damage caused by culvert failures. Construction is anticipated to begin during the spring of 2020 and will require approximately 7 months to complete. The project would not require acquisition of new right-of-way. Temporary access roads outside of Caltrans right-of-way would require a Temporary Construction Easement. Drainage Easements for permanent drainage facilities that extend beyond the existing State right-of-way would be required for some locations. The project will require permits from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (1600), the Central Valley Water Quality Control Board (401), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (404). , Why This Notice Caltrans has studied the environmental effects of the proposed culvert repair and replacement project and has determined that the project would not have a significant effect on the environment.
