The County of San Diego Department of Public Works is conducting preventative maintenance and upgrades for bridges within the County. These projects are funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Caltrans was the review agency and documents were prepared according to Caltrans guidelines in compliance with NEPA, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and County of San Diego CEQA Guidelines.
PanGIS has conducted archaeological, historical, and GIS services for three separate bridge projects. For the Cottonwood Creek bridge, PanGIS prepared a FNAE (Finding of No Adverse Effect) & Action Plan for the NRHP eligible property. For the Lawson Valley Road Bridge West Project, PanGIS provided the following services: record search, Class III archaeological survey, DPR form update, ASR (Archaeological Survey Report), and GIS mapping for both archaeology and biological resources (vegetation, sensitive species, jurisdictional delineation for Waters of the State and Waters of the U.S, location). The third project involved geotechnical investigations in support of the preliminary engineering design for the Pamo Road North Bridge replacement project. For this project, PanGIS provided archaeological monitoring during geotechnical testing, archival record search, field survey, HPSR technical report, and a plan for the Phase 1 and Phase III data recovery. GIS mapping was provided for both archaeology and biological resources (vegetation, bird surveys, jurisdictional delineation for Waters of the State and Waters of the U.S, location).
