Description:
A reconnaissance of the project roads, constructed prior to 1990, showed that large volumes of fill had been placed over steep cross slopes. Slumping fills and tension cracks were evident along many sections of these roads, and several large slope failures had already occurred off the Nut Creek road and NCR29 prior to 2001. These roads cross Es1 and Es2 classified terrain, which is considered to be high and moderate hazard terrain where landslide failures can occur. The reconnaissance level assessment identified the hazard as high along a number of sections of these roads. Specific locations identified as moderate or high hazard are identified in the Road Deactivation Report and the As-Built Completion Report. These reports must be read in conjunction with this Project Completion Abstract to understand road conditions at the time of assessment in 2001 and the residual hazards remaining after the road deactivation project was completed. Previous road deactivation work was minimal with only a few shallow infrequent cross-ditches placed along these roads. No fill retrieval appears to have been completed in the past.
