Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration

Notice of Intent to Adopt

Mitigated Negative Declaration

for the

Beckwourth-Genesee Road Project

The Plumas County Planning Department intends to adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Beckwourth-Genesee Road Project. Plumas County, in combination with the Federal Highway Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, is proposing to improve and realign the southern 9.6 miles of Forest Highway (FH) 177 (Beckwourth-Genesee Road) from State Route 70 in Beckwourth to County Road 111 in Clover Valley. The existing roadway is a combination of paved and unpaved surfaces. The project would widen, realign, and resurface the road to improve the operational and design deficiencies of the roadway to be consistent with current design standards.

Copies of the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study are available for review at the Plumas County Planning Department located at 555 Main Street in Quincy and on the Plumas County website at Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (PDF).

The review period for this document is February 19, 2014 through March 20, 2014. Comments will be accepted through the last day of the review period. If you have any questions concerning this project or the mitigated negative declaration please contact Jim Graham at Plumas County Public Works Department, 1834 E. Main Street, by phone at (530) 283-6169, or by email at Jim Graham
