Currently, the range of alternatives being considered includes either taking no action on the 3.6-mile segment of El Camino Real, or proceeding with one of several potential build alternatives. The build alternatives would all involve performing roadway rehabilitation with upgrades to drainage, pedestrian, and roadway infrastructure to achieve the purpose and need of the project. The roadway rehabilitation alternatives may include the following: Rehabilitation while keeping utilities overhead; rehabilitation while relocating utilities underground; rehabilitation while reducing the number of travel lanes from 4 to 2 and including a 12-foot center-turning lane while keeping utilities overhead; and rehabilitation while reducing the number of travel lanes from 4 to 2 and including a 12-foot center-turning lane while relocating utilities underground. Varying roadway widths (ranging 44–46 feet), travel lane widths (ranging 10–11 feet), and sidewalk widths (ranging 4–6 feet) are being considered to avoid and minimize impacts to the Howard-Ralston Eucalyptus Tree Rows, where feasible. Avoidance and minimization measures will be studied and implemented depending upon the limits of state right of way, Caltrans’ ability to meet state highway design and safety provisions, and/or other factors. The only anticipated Federal approval includes a permit under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Other Federal administrative activities include coordination with the Department of the Interior under Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act (1966) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (1966). Notices describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal cooperating and participating agencies. Since June 2019, Caltrans has been in consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act to evaluate potential effects to the HowardRalston Eucalyptus Tree Rows, a historic property listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and to evaluate potential effects to other historic properties determined eligible for the NRHP. Notifications have been sent to appropriate State, tribal governments, local agencies, private organizations, and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Dec 08, 2020 Jkt 253001 The project team anticipates reviewing all public comments received during the public scoping period and circulating a Draft EIS. A public hearing will be held once the Draft EIS is completed. Public notice will be given of the time and place of the meeting and hearing. The Draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing to ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues are identified, and comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the Draft EIS should be directed to Caltrans at the address provided above.
