The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has prepared this Initial Study with proposed Negative Declaration (IS/ND) and proposed Section 4(f) de minimis determination which examines the potential environmental effects of a proposed project on United States Highway 101 (U.S. 101) in Del Norte 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.
Please note: this meeting will focus only on the geotechnical studies, not the broader Last Chance Grade project.
The document can be reviewed or downloaded here.

- Eureka Library 1313 3rd Street, Eureka, CA

What happens after this?
After comments are received from the public and reviewing agencies, Caltrans may (1) give environmental approval to the proposed project, (2) do additional environmental studies, or (3) abandon the project. If the project is given environmental approval and funding is obtained, Caltrans could complete the design and construct all or part of the project.
