Finding of No Significant Impact for Road Improvement and Maintenance Projects, Point Reyes National Seashore
The National Park Service has published a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the implementation of Road Improvement and Maintenance Projects in Point Reyes National Seashore. These projects will rehabilitate and repave a total of 21.8 miles of road and adjacent parking areas in Point Reyes National Seashore. The National Park Service selected the preferred alternative, which includes: rehabilitation of portions of Limantour Road, Lighthouse Road, and Chimney Rock Road, and Pavement Preservation (minor rehabilitation and maintenance) on 15 spur roads and 21 paved parking areas. The project includes upgrading road and parking surfaces and drainage features, installing new signs, striping the roads and parking areas, downsizing a beach-side parking area, and improving accessibility at two of the parking areas.
The preferred alternative was described in detail in the environmental assessment (EA), which was available for a 30-day public review ending on August 18, 2014. There were no modifications or revisions to the proposal due to public comment. There were some changes or corrections to the text of the EA based on responses to comments on the EA. These text changes were incorporated into Errata for the EA attached to the FONSI.
