Background
Green Valley Road is one of three east-west arterials in the West Slope area of El Dorado County, extending from the western County line to Placerville.  The Green Valley Road at Weber Creek Bridge (Bridge) was constructed in 1926 and is a 20-foot wide, two-lane, concrete "T" Beam structure that has been identified by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) as structurally deficient (sufficiency rating of 22.5).  Additionally, the Bridge does not meet current standards of roadway width and must be replaced because it cannot be rehabilitated.
 
The Green Valley Road at Weber Creek - Bridge Replacement Project (Project) site is severely constrained due to the steep, wide ravine and the 90-degree turn at the south Bridge approach resulting in traffic and safety concerns.  This Bridge is one of only three crossings over Weber Creek in the area and provides an alternative route to U.S. Highway 50 and the Missouri Flat Interchange.  Construction is expected to begin in the year 2014 and take approximately two years to complete.
 
The Project is subject to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  The CEQA Mitigated Negative Declaration was approved by the Board on November 14, 2011 and the NEPA Findings of No Significant Impact was approved by Caltrans on January 27, 2012.
 
On January 8, 2013 the Board authorized Transportation (Department) to proceed with the acquisition process for the land rights necessary for the construction and completion of the Project.
 
Reason for Recommendation
Negotiations have concluded with the property owners, Theodore B. Medeiros and Janet C. Medeiros, Trustees of The Medeiros Revocable Living Trust, Dated April 14, 1992, and a settlement has been reached that is representative of the appraised value of the necessary land rights.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
1. The Clerk of the Board will obtain the Chair's signature on the Acquisition Agreement for Public Purposes and the Certificates of Acceptance for the Fee and Easements.
2. The Clerk of the Board will return all executed documents to the Department for final processing.
