March 23, 2016 - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to repair a failed slope beneath an 84-inch reinforced concrete pipe culvert adjacent to the eastbound lane of State Route 140 at post mile 32.2 in Mariposa County. Construction of a rockfilled gabion basket wall with stone base support/buttress is the proposed repair method to repair the failed slope and stop erosion from the culvert at this site.
The purpose of the project, also known as the SR-140 Slope Repair Project, is to prevent further erosion of the slope and protect the highway and the associated culvert. Caltrans is the lead agency for the preparation of the environmental document for the project pursuant to both the California Environmental Quality Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.
The comment period begins March 17, 2016, and ends April 18, 2016.
