The new structure will clear span San Jose Creek and be approximately 68 feet in length with a typical cross section of four 12 foot-wide through traffic lanes, bicycle lanes/shoulders, 10 foot-wide sidewalks and a median. The existing concrete-lined trapezoidal channel under the bridge and downstream will be replaced with a wider channel with vertical walls. The Project includes an 80 foot-long transition from the improved San Jose Creek Channel to the natural creek immediately upstream of the bridge, and widening 210 feet of the San Jose Creek channel immediately downstream of the new bridge. The Project will provide conveyance of 100-year flood flows and will conform to the recently widened San Jose Creek Channel. The channel bottom will be protected with articulated concrete mats, with provisions for fish passage consistent with the recently completed construction downstream. A privately owned steel bridge, located approximately 75 feet south of Hollister Avenue, will be removed toward the end of the construction period. Construction is planned between the Spring of 2016 to spring 2018. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The draft Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the State Guidelines for the Implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The DMND identifies and discusses potential impacts, mitigation measures agreed to by the City, monitoring requirements, and residual impacts for the identified subject areas. Potentially significant effects on the environment are anticipated in the following areas: Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology/Soils, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Hydrology/Water Quality, Land Use/Planning, Noise, Public Services, Transportation/Traffic, and Utilities/Service Systems. DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The DMND may be obtained for public review on and after December 19, 2014 at the City of Goleta, Public Works Department, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, California and will also be posted to the City’s web site at A copy of the document will be available at the Goleta Library, 500 N.
