The City of Yucaipa elevated an “at grade” low water crossing of 13th Street to construct a reinforced concrete box culvert (RCB) at Wilson Creek in order to reduce flooding deficiencies and allow for safe crossing for pedestrians and vehicles during storm events. The RCB extended into the upstream and downstream portion of Wilson Creek for a total of 380 linear feet along the existing channel alignment. The projects channel improvements included concrete invert linings, concrete wing-walls, and ungrounted riprap channel lining that extended downstream.
The 13th Street Project was one of the four flood control management and road improvement projects for the City of Yucaipa that RVA negotiated a permittee-responsible compensatory mitigation for four projects into one Conservation Easement (CE), Habitat Mitigation and Monitoring Program (HMMP), and Long Term Management Plan (LTMP) for 6.19 acres at the City’s El Dorado Mitigation Area. RVA also negotiated the ability for the City to construct the projects prior to the final recording of the CE.
RVA was successful in negotiating and obtaining the regulatory permits, recording the CE, implementation of the HMMP and LTMP required from the USACE, California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), and Caltrans.
