7 Project Delivery Process Where we are

8 Purpose of the Environmental Document Disclose environmental impacts Identify and compare alternatives Provide mitigation to reduce significant impacts Enhance agency and public participation Disclose agency decision-making process

9 Purposes of the SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project Safety and Operations. Improve the safety and operations of the SR 89/28 wye intersection and Fanny Bridge area in Tahoe City for present and future automobile travel demand, pedestrian activity, and trail use. Improve emergency access to and from the West Shore. Address the long-term structural integrity of the 86-year-old Fanny Bridge through its rehabilitation or replacement. Multimodal Mobility. Improve multimodal mobility in the Fanny Bridge area through the creation of Complete Street elements to accommodate all travel modes, including transit, pedestrian, and bicycle, while also improving personal auto access. Economic Revitalization. Contribute to the economic revitalization of the local Tahoe City community by enhancing auto and non-auto business access and safety, including delivery of goods and services and the creation of community gathering places

10 Project Alternatives With Realignment Alternative 1: New Alignment Existing SR 89 Open to Local Traffic Alternative 2: New Alignment Close Existing SR 89 to Vehicle Traffic at Fanny Bridge Alternative 3: New Alignment Existing SR 89 Becomes a Cul-de-Sac South of Fanny Bridge Alternative 4: New Alignment, No Roundabout Existing SR 89 Becomes a Cul-de-Sac South of Fanny Bridge

11 Alternative 1 New Alignment Local Traffic on Existing SR 89

12 Alternative 2 New Alignment Close Existing SR 89 at Fanny Bridge

13 Complete-Street Concepts Alternatives 1 and 2

14 Complete-Street Concepts Alternative 1

15 Alternative 3 New Alignment Cul-de-Sac on Existing SR 89

16 Alternative 4 New Alignment No Roundabouts

17 Complete-Street Concepts Alternatives 3 and 4

18 Other Modifications with Alternatives 1 through 4 Modifications to the Caltrans maintenance yard primary ingress/egress Replace 40-year old Truckee River Interceptor with new infrastructure Realignment of bike paths along the existing SR 89 and near the Caltrans maintenance yard to improve safety Retention of existing trail connectivity within the Project Area

19 Project Alternatives Without a Realignment Alternative 5: No Action/No Project Alternative 6: Rehabilitate or Replace and Widen Existing Bridge, Modify Lane Configuration at Existing Wye Intersection Alternative 6a: Rehabilitate or Replace and Widen Existing Bridge, Install Roundabout at Existing Wye Intersection

20 Alternative 5 No Action/No Project

21 Alternative 6 Rehab/Replace Bridge Signalized Intersection

22 Alternative 6a Rehab/Replace Bridge Roundabout

23 Complete-Street Concepts Alternative 6a

24 Navigating the EIR/EIS/EA EIR/EIS/EA covers the full scope of issues Organization of each environmental issue section Regulatory Setting Environmental Setting Environmental Effects of the Project Alternatives Avoidance, Minimization, and/or Mitigation Measures Cumulative, growth-inducing, and socioeconomic impacts Comprehensive summary information

25 Environmental Topics Addressed Agricultural and Forest Resources Air Quality Biological Resources (Vegetation, Wildlife, and Fisheries) Cultural Resources Geology, Soils, Land Capability, and Coverage Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Climate Change Hydrology and Water Quality Hazards, Hazardous Materials, and Risk of Upset Land Use and Planning Noise Population, Employment, and Housing Public Services and Utilities Recreation Scenic Resources Traffic and Transportation

26 Environmental Issues Addressed Agricultural and Forest Resources Air Quality Biological Resources (Vegetation, Wildlife, and Fisheries) Cultural Resources Geology, Soils, Land Capability, and Coverage Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Climate Change Hydrology and Water Quality Hazards, Hazardous Materials, and Risk of Upset Land Use and Planning Noise Population, Employment, and Housing Public Services and Utilities Recreation Scenic Resources Traffic and Transportation

27 Noise Significant construction-period noise and vibration impacts. Mitigated with standard noise-control practices. For Alternatives 1 4, traffic noise would shift from existing SR 89 to the realigned highway segment. No alternatives would cause increases in community-wide noise (noise increase occurs from regional growth). Noise along realigned highway will be maintained within TRPA standard (55 CNEL) with mitigation developed during detailed design, such as: Speed reduction to 30 mph or lower Vegetative screening Noise-attenuating pavement Vegetated earth berm for noise attenuation

28 Population, Employment, and Housing Alternative 1 would benefit business and community access, because both a realigned highway and local access on existing SR 89 would be provided. Alternatives 6 and 6a would result in significant displacement of businesses. Mitigation measures would require a relocation assistance plan or equivalent process.

29 Recreation Significant temporary disruption of recreation access during construction for all Action Alternatives. Mitigated with standard practices, such as trail detours. Beneficial long-term recreation effects from improved trail connectivity, pedestrian safety, river access for all Action Alternatives. Significant public access impacts for Alternatives 2 and 3 due to loss of 16 parking spaces. Mitigated by replacement parking.

30 Scenic For Alternatives 1 4, potentially significant scenic impacts on recreation user views within Project Area by the realigned highway on an embankment (3 to 9 feet in height). Mitigation measures would require forest revegetation to visually soften and blend the realigned highway within the forest landscape.

31 Traffic and Transportation Alternatives 6 and 6a would result in temporary significant and unavoidable traffic impacts for up to two (2) construction seasons, because of Fanny Bridge-lane reduction. Beneficial impacts from reduced Vehicle Miles Traveled per capita for Alternatives 1 4. Beneficial traffic and pedestrian safety improvements for all Action Alternatives. Increases delay for existing congested intersection at Granlibakken/SR 89 for Alternatives 1-4 (all other intersections improved). Placer County has already identified this as an existing impact and is included in Placer County s Traffic Impact Fee Program.

32 Traffic and Transportation (cont.) Significant increase in delay on roadway segments between the western roundabout and new wye for Alternatives 2 and 3 in Mitigation measures would require a full two-lane western roundabout. Alternatives 2 and 3 would result in significant and unavoidable delays in this segment in 2038 (further roundabout expansion not feasible). Significant impacts under Alternatives 2 and 3 at the western roundabout in Mitigation measures would require a full two-lane western roundabout. Alternatives 2 and 3 would result in significant and unavoidable delays at western roundabout in 2038 (further roundabout expansion not feasible).

33 Comparison of the Action Alternatives Environmental Conclusions Alternative 1 Alternative 2 Alternative 3 Alternative 4 Alternative 6 Alternative 6a Potentially Significant and Significant Impacts. Mitigated to Less Than Signif Forest, Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Scenic, Traffic Forest, Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Scenic, Traffic Forest, Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Scenic, Traffic Forest, Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Scenic, Traffic Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Pop/Employ/House, Traffic Biological, Cultural, Hazards, Noise, Recreation, Pop/Employ/House, Traffic Significant and Unavoidable Impacts Traffic Traffic Traffic Traffic Beneficial Environmental Impacts Geology, Pop/Empl/House, Recreation, Services, Traffic Geology, Recreation, Services, Traffic Geology, Recreation, Services, Traffic Geology, Recreation, Services, Traffic Geology, Recreation, Traffic Geology, Recreation, Traffic Note: Alternatives 1, 4, 6, and 6a would meet all of the project objectives and not cause long-term significant and unavoidable impacts based on the information contained Draft EIR/EIS/EA
