Three Lake Bridges

The purpose of this project is to upgrade the bridge rails and shoulder widths of the three bridges to current design standards. The project is necessary because the railings on these bridges do not meet current standards and the shoulders are narrower than the standard eight-foot width.  They would be widened to meet current shoulder width standards, and if the existing structure cannot support the new railings and bridge widening the structure would be replaced.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has prepared this Initial Study with proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) which examines the potential environmental effects of a proposed project on State Route 20, 29, and 175 in Lake County, California. Caltrans is the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). This document tells you why the project is being proposed, how the existing environment could be affected by the project, the potential impacts of the project, and proposed avoidance, minimization, and/or mitigation measures.
