        1.       Introduction
        The San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG), in cooperation with the
        California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), proposes to extend State
        Route 4 (SR-4) West, also known as the “Crosstown Freeway”, westward from its
        current termini at Fresno Avenue1 to Navy Drive in the City of Stockton and
        County of San Joaquin (see Attachment J for Location Map and Vicinity Map), in
        order to improve traffic operations access to the Port of Stockton (Port) and
        alleviate truck traffic through the Boggs Tract neighborhood. The improvements
        proposed for the SR-4 Crosstown Freeway Ramp Extension Project (Project) also
        include the widening of Navy Drive just south of the Burlington Northern Santa
        Fe (BNSF) Underpass to Fresno Avenue, striping improvements on West Charter
        Way (SR-4), from Army Court to Tillie Lewis Drive, and installation of traffic
        signals at the Navy Drive/Tillie Lewis Drive and West Charter Way/Tillie Lewis
        Drive intersections. The post mile limits on West Charter Way and SR-4 are 14.4
        to 14.8 and T14.6 to R15.7, respectively.

        The Project proposes to span over the Boggs Tract neighborhood, the BNSF
        railroad, and the Central California Traction Company (CCTC) spur lines. Two
        structural options, Alternative 3A and 3B, have been identified as viable
        alternatives for this proposed extension. Alternative 3A proposes twin viaduct
        structures and Alternative 3B proposes a retaining wall system. A single bridge
        structure will span over BNSF and CCTC spur lines for the alternatives. Both
        alternatives maintain the same horizontal alignment and vertical profile.

        For Alternative 3A, the project cost is estimated at about $120 million, which
        includes $19.9 million for right-of-way and utility relocation and $100.1 million
        for construction. For Alternative 3B, the project cost is estimated at about $126
        million, which includes $19.9 million for right-of-way and $106.1 million for
        construction. Funding will be provided by the Proposition 1B Trade Corridor
        Improvement Fund (TCIF), Measure K (San Joaquin County’s one-half cent sales
        tax), and Regional Transportation Impact Fees (RTIF). This project has been
        assigned a Project Development Processing Category 1 because it requires
        substantial new right-of-way and access control.

        2.       Recommendation
        It is recommended that this Draft Project Report (DPR) be approved and that
        authorization be granted to circulate the Draft Environmental Impact Report
        (DEIR) and schedule a public hearing.

  Fresno Avenue becomes South Fresno Avenue south of the existing ramp termini. For the purpose of this
report both Fresno Avenue and South Fresno Avenue will be referred to as Fresno Avenue unless a specific
address is identified.

3.   Background
A.   Project History
     The Crosstown Freeway serves as a vital link between the Port and
     Interstate 5 (I-5). Immediately west of the I-5/Crosstown Freeway
     interchange, the existing Crosstown Freeway ends at its connection to
     Fresno Avenue. The current Freeway Agreement, dated 1968 between
     Caltrans and San Joaquin County includes the extension of the Crosstown
     Freeway southwest to intersect with West Charter Way just west of where
     West Charter Way crosses the San Joaquin River. The 1968 Freeway
     Agreement also provides for a future interchange at Navy Drive.

     Since the beginning of construction of the existing Crosstown Freeway in
     1969, the Port has experienced significant growth. The Port is currently
     the largest Tier II port in California and the third largest inland port on the
     West Coast. With 55 international trading partners, the Port achieved its
     highest volume of cargo in 2006 and 2007, with more than 3 million tons
     of cargo across the docks and an additional 2.5 million tons of fuel
     delivered by pipeline in the year 2007. The BNSF railway mainline
     service runs between the City of Martinez and the San Joaquin Valley
     along the southern border of the Port and provides direct service to the
     Port via spur lines operated by the CCTC.

     With the growth in the Port, the truck traffic traveling through the area has
     also increased. Approximately 4,400 trucks per day currently access the
     Port through the Boggs Tract neighborhood. The existing local roadway
     network was not designed to carry the level of truck traffic it currently
     serves. The proposed dredging project between the Port and the San
     Francisco Bay will affect truck traffic in the project area as the capacity of
     the channel is increased and goods movement to the Port are increased.
     Development of the Port’s proposed 1,400-acre West Complex
     development on what was formerly known as Rough and Ready Island, is
     also expected to increase truck volumes to and from the Port and adjacent
     industrial uses to approximately 54,000 trips per day by the year 2035,
     with 20,000 trips per day traveling through Boggs Tract along West
     Washington Street.

     The surrounding local streets and the ramp intersections at Fresno Avenue
     currently experience unacceptable levels of service during peak periods,
     resulting in significant delay times. Since the existing roadway network
     cannot handle traffic operations of this magnitude, numerous studies have
     recommended improvements within the Crosstown Freeway corridor.

                                                              December 2009

The Project Study Report (PSR) for Caltrans dated June 2008 proposed
two alternatives, each of which included two phases. Both alternatives
proposed extending the current terminus of the Crosstown Freeway from
Fresno Avenue to West Charter Way for ultimate connectivity along SR-
4. For this extension, Phase 1 included limits from Fresno Avenue to
Navy Drive and Phase 2 included limits from Navy Drive to West Charter
Way. Although the limits were the same for both alternatives, each
differed, based on alignment. Alternative 1 maintained the existing
Crosstown Freeway alignment and spanned the BNSF corridor in Phase 1
touching down at Navy Drive west of Tillie Lewis, whereas Alternative 2
introduced a realignment, running parallel to and north of the BNSF
corridor in Phase 2, to Navy Drive.

At the end of the PID phase prior to the PSR’s signature and approval,
SJCOG received a letter from the City of Stockton-Municipal Utilities
District (COS-MUD) regarding their review of the Draft PSR indicating
they “…vehemently object to Alternative 2 (Phase 1 and 2), which
presents a large impact to the facilities and treatment processes at the
Regional Wastewater Control Facility (RWCF).”            During follow-up
meetings held at the beginning of the Project Approval & Environmental
Document (PA&ED) phase, COS-MUD again confirmed that they are
opponents of Alternative 2 (Phase 1 and 2) due to its bisection and impacts
to the District’s oxidation ponds. The District noted the alternative would
have grave impacts to their wastewater treatment abilities. COS-MUD
also noted that they will publicly support its elimination, including their
willingness to publicly testify if necessary.

Following the release of the signed and approved PSR in June 2008,
updated preliminary traffic operations analysis for the PA&ED phase was
conducted on Alternative 1; Alternative 2 was removed from further-
consideration due to the aforementioned comments made by COS-MUD.
The preliminary analysis indicated that the project improvements known
as Phase 1 (extension of the current ramp termini of SR-4, from Fresno
Avenue to Navy Drive) offered stand-alone or “independent utility” with
respect to traffic operation improvements and addressed the project’s
purpose and need. The purpose of including Phase 2 (extension of the
Phase 1 ramp termini of SR-4, from Navy Drive to West Charter Way) in
the Project Initiation Document (PID) was to show logical termini and
ultimate connectivity, as required by NEPA and for the purpose of
maintaining Federal funding eligibility. Phase 1 is fully funded through
Proposition 1B TCIF, Measure K, and RTIF. Due to independent utility,
Federal funding is no longer being pursued for Phase 1. As a result, a
Supplemental PSR for Caltrans, dated May 2009, was prepared extracting
Phase 1 only to meet Department PID requirements for the purpose of
programming, scheduling, and establishing necessary capital and support

     costs. Furthermore, the Supplemental PSR, which was signed and
     approved on May 18, 2009, recommended that the PA&ED activities
     continue given the revised project limits of Phase 1. From this point
     onward, the PID’s Phase 1 – Alternative 1 is referred to as Alternative 1
     and additional discussion is presented in Section 5B, of this Project
     Report.

     After further evaluation, it was determined that Alternative 1 created
     significant right-of-way impacts to properties along the northern boundary
     of Navy Drive with the proposed eastbound on-ramp. To reduce right-of-
     way impacts and sparing additional businesses along Navy Drive while
     satisfying the Project’s purpose and need, it was decided by the Project
     Development Team (PDT) to develop Alternative 2 in this PR.
     Alternative 2 included a realignment of Tillie Lewis Drive and the EB SR-
     4 on-ramp in Alternative 1 to create a new 4-way intersection, easterly of
     the existing T-intersection of Tillie Lewis Drive and Navy Drive.
     Additional discussion of Alternative 2 is presented in Section 5B, Rejected
     Alternatives, of this Project Report.

     To further minimize right-of-way impacts, a third alternative (Alternative
     3) was considered by realigning the eastbound SR-4 on-ramp at Navy
     Drive directly adjacent to the previously aligned westbound SR-4 off-
     ramp along the BNSF corridor. Both ramps would terminate at Navy
     Drive and constitute the northern leg of this consolidated T-intersection.
     In comparison, this context-sensitive solution that minimizes project right-
     of-way requirements was noted to also eliminate access control concerns
     between the ramps that hampered both Alternatives 1 and 2. It was
     recommended at a Caltrans 503.2 meeting, held on May 5, 2009, that
     Alternatives 1 and 2 be eliminated as alternatives under further
     consideration for the Project Report based on cost and unacceptable social,
     economic, and/or environmental impacts. Following this resolution, two
     “sub-alternatives” sharing the same alignment were developed and are
     further-discussed in this Project Report as Alternative 3A (viaduct) and
     Alternative 3B (retaining wall).

B.   Community Interaction
     Public support for transportation improvements within the County is
     demonstrated by the passage of San Joaquin County’s Measure K ballot.
     Measure K is an initiative that re-authorized the ½ cent sales tax dedicated
     to funding transportation projects within the County.

     A crucial aspect of this project is recognizing that the project’s purpose,
     need and resulting benefits are counterbalanced by concerns of property
     values, noise, aesthetics, and construction cost and duration. To serve the
     community directly in regard to this project, over fifteen stakeholder and

     focus meetings were held. Meetings and participants included the Boggs
     Tract Community Center, Stockton Redevelopment Agency, San Joaquin
     Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Catholic Archdiocese and Charities,
     Navy Drive businesses, El Concilio, Port of Stockton, Washington
     Elementary School, COS-MUD, Stockton Unified School District, San
     Joaquin County and City of Stockton Public Works, Stockton Chamber of
     Commerce, and City and County Police, Fire and Sherriff departments.
     These stakeholder meetings were held to create project awareness, create a
     channel for communication to voice comments, questions and concerns,
     and ascertain a level of consensus for the proposed project among
     neighborhood residents.         Ultimately, solicitation of community
     participation assisted in identifying community attitudes and priorities
     towards the project and alternatives.

     A public information meeting was held on October 15, 2009 that presented
     Alternatives 3A and 3B for public comment and focused on the Project’s
     impact to the Boggs Tract neighborhood. Although not required as part of
     the CEQA guidelines, the informational meeting was conducted to foster,
     encourage, and facilitate the spirit of community interaction and
     involvement that has been both effective and successful in this PA&ED
     phase thus far.

     Upon the approval and circulation of the forthcoming DEIR, an
     opportunity for a public hearing or meeting will be provided as part of the
     45-day public review and comment period for the DEIR. Notification for
     a public hearing or meeting will be conveyed via newspaper
     advertisements in local newspapers as well as mail notifications to
     residences in the project area. The offer for a public meeting will also be
     included in the transmittal that will accompany each mailed copy of the
     draft environmental document.

C.   Existing Facility
     SR-4 is an east-west roadway facility that begins in the City of Hercules,
     proceeds east towards Stockton, and ultimately terminates at the SR-4/SR-
     89 intersection in the Sierra Nevada Mountains (see Figure 3.1). SR-4 is
     approximately 197 miles and spans through five counties (Contra Costa,
     San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Calaveras, and Alpine). Dependent on its
     location, SR-4 is a two-lane expressway, two-lane conventional highway,
     and an accessed controlled multi-lane freeway. For this project, the
     description of SR-4 will be limited to San Joaquin County. Please refer to
     Attachment J1- Project Location Map for additional information.

     Within San Joaquin County, SR-4 begins, from the west, as a two-lane
     conventional highway and becomes West Charter Way in the City of
     Stockton. West Charter Way, as SR-4, is a non-access controlled two-lane

between the San Joaquin River Bridge (Bridge No. 29-0050) and I-5. Prior
to this segment, the posted speed limit is 55 mph. East of Tillie Lewis
Drive; the posted speed limit is 50 mph. The design speeds associated with
these segment’s horizontal and vertical alignments are 60 mph and 55
mph, respectively. West Charter Way accommodates 12-foot wide lanes
and outside shoulders that vary between 2 to 8 feet wide. West Charter
Way continues east until the I-5/SR-4 (West Charter Way) separation.
Within this segment, there exist three signalized intersections: Fresno
Avenue, Navy Drive/South Stockton Street, and I-5. All other
intersections are stop-controlled with West Charter Way having the free
through movement. From the I-5/SR-4 (West Charter Way) separation, I-
5 and SR-4 share the same access controlled multi-lane freeway facility
and continues north for approximately 0.8 mile to the SR-4/I-5 direct
connector ramps. At this segment, SR-4 is known as the “Crosstown
Freeway”. The Crosstown Freeway, as SR-4, begins at its terminus at
Fresno Avenue, which is west of the aforementioned connector ramps,
crosses I-5, continues easterly through Downtown Stockton, and merges
with SR-99. The Crosstown Freeway is an access controlled multilane
four to six-lane freeway facility that is approximately four miles long and
accommodates 12-foot lanes, 10-foot outside shoulders, and minimum 5-
foot inside shoulders. The Crosstown Freeway is the shortest connection
between I-5 and SR-99. The freeway is meant to bypass local streets in the
City of Stockton. From the SR-4/SR-99 separation, SR-4 continues south
to Farmington Boulevard. SR-4 and SR-99 share the same access
controlled multi-lane freeway facility for approximately 1.5 miles. The
posted speed limit is 65 mph and the design speed associated with the
horizontal and vertical alignments for all freeway segments is 70 mph.
From Farmington Boulevard, SR-4 is a non-access controlled two-lane
conventional highway and proceeds easterly, away from SR-99, towards
the San Joaquin County/Calaveras County border. Please refer to
Attachment J2- Project Vicinity Map for additional information.

Fresno Avenue is a two-lane collector road with 12-foot wide lanes and
outside shoulders that vary between 5 to 18 feet wide. Fresno Avenue,
within the project limits, has a posted speed limit of 25 mph and a design
speed limit of 30 mph. This collector road serves as the connection point
for traffic on the Crosstown Freeway and I-5 to access local residences, an
elementary school, and the Port. Equally, it serves as an access point for
local businesses along Navy Drive, Tillie Lewis Drive, and West Charter
Way. Due to the ease of access and proximity to residences, local
businesses and the Port along Navy Drive and West Washington Street,
Fresno Avenue experiences high traffic volumes, including trucks, through
the Boggs Tract neighborhood.

          Boggs Tract is an unincorporated area of San Joaquin County nestled on
          the western edge of the City of Stockton. This area is surrounded by the
          BNSF and CCTC rail lines to the south, the Port to the west and north, and
          Fresno Avenue to the east. The neighborhood experiences heavy truck
          traffic traveling to the Port of Stockton and SR-4.

          The Port of Stockton is the furthest inland seaport in Northern California.
          As mentioned previously, the Port has undergone recent expansion with
          the acquisition of Rough and Ready Island from the United States Navy in

2002. Rough and Ready island is known as Port of Stockton West and
includes warehouse and railroad facilities, and Ports 14-20. The port
serves as a hub for two major railways: BNSF and CCTC. Expansion
activities included providing a two-mile direct ship-to-rail facility
encouraging the 44% increase of rail traffic to the port from 2007-2008.
Revenues generated by Port activity have exceeded $30 million in recent
years.

Existing drainage facilities include roadside ditches, underground pipes,
detention ponds, pump stations, and outfalls to major waterways. The
existing impervious area within the proposed project limits is
approximately 6.8 acres. The northern half of the Boggs Tract drains to an
interim drainage pond and emergency storm discharge line which conveys
water to the Stockton Deep Water Channel to the north. The southern half
of the Boggs Tract drains to the Mormon Slough Outfall to the east via a
City pump station located at the corner of Fresno Avenue and West Scotts
Avenue. The area located south of the BNSF railroad corridor drains
westerly to the San Joaquin River Outfall via ditches located along Navy
Drive, Tillie Lewis Drive, and West Charter Way, ultimately ending at a
City detention pond and pump station located at the western end of SR-
4/West Charter Way. For additional information regarding existing
drainage conditions, please refer to the Preliminary Drainage Report –
State Route 4 Crosstown Freeway Project, dated August 2009.

4.    Need and Purpose
 A.   Problem, Deficiencies, Justification
      Compounded with inadequate connectivity between I-5, SR-4, and the
      Port of Stockton, the growth (of the Port) and adjacent industrial
      businesses has led, and will continue to lead, to increased congestion and
      emissions within the Boggs Tract neighborhood and adjacent roadway
      facilities within the vicinity of the Port. According to the approved Final
      Traffic Operations Report – State Route 4 West PA/ED, dated July 2009,
      with the expansion of the Port, traffic is forecasted to increase to
      unacceptable levels with a No-Build alternative. Under the No-Build
      scenario, the existing facility would serve only 49% of the AM peak hour
      2035 traffic demand and 63% of the PM peak hour 2035 traffic demand,
      with many of the associated intersections operating at a level of service
      (LOS) of E or worse.

      The purpose of the project is to:

             Improve the connection between Interstate 5/Crosstown Freeway,
             the Port, and adjacent industrial uses,
             Remove industrial truck traffic from the residential Boggs Tract
             neighborhood, and
             Improve local air quality.

      The need of the project is:
      Improved Connectivity - Currently, the connection between Interstate 5
      and the Port is inadequate. The existing Crosstown Freeway connection at
      Fresno Avenue was presented to the community in the mid-60s as a short-
      term solution that would become unnecessary when the Crosstown
      Freeway was connected directly to West Charter Way. This connection
      has never been constructed. Traffic associated with the Port and adjacent
      industrial uses already overloads the local roads, and it is expected to get
      worse as growth projected for the Port, adjacent industrial uses, and the
      region increases demand on existing local roads.

      Currently, traffic between the Port and Interstate 5 typically travels on one
      of two routes. By way of Fresno Avenue south to West Charter Way and
      the Port of Stockton Expressway (the “southern route”), traffic passes
      through four signalized intersections (approximately 4.4 miles). This route
      does not have the capacity to accommodate existing demand, so it is often
      congested. Vehicles experience delays at the signalized intersections.
      Due to the congestion on West Charter Way, many trucks headed to the
      Port travel north on Fresno Avenue to West Washington Street (the

                                                       Program 723 & 400.100
                                                               December 2009

“northern route”), which takes them about 2.3 miles through the Boggs
Tract residential neighborhood. This route passes through two signalized
intersections in Boggs Tract, a long-established residential neighborhood
in direct proximity to schools, parks and community centers. Vehicles
along this route also experience delays during afternoon peak traffic hour
at some intersections.

After completion of the project, Port and industrial traffic would be carried
directly to Navy Drive, bypassing the Boggs Tract neighborhood. Trucks
would have a more direct and shorter route (approximately 1.8 miles) to
replace the southern route. On the northern route, traffic would be able to
avoid travelling on residential streets in Boggs Tract, and could take Navy
Drive direct to Washington Street well to the west of the boundary of the
subdivision.

Additional truck traffic associated with the Port’s proposed West Complex
expansion and the proposed channel capacity increasing project between
the Port and the San Francisco Bay will only worsen the already poor
connection between Interstate 5 and the Port. The Port’s West Complex
development is predicted to increase the number of large commercial ships
at the facility from 20 to 150 large commercial ships, requiring more than
10 times the number of employees by 2025 as the Port has today.

Reduced Traffic Impacts in Boggs Tract - As noted earlier, an estimated
4,400 trucks bound for the Port and adjacent warehouse and industrial
facilities invade the residential streets in the Boggs Tract neighborhood,
primarily Fresno Avenue and West Washington Street, each day. This
traffic brings noise, air quality, visual, traffic and pedestrian safety, and
congestion impacts for the residents. These impacts will increase as traffic
through the neighborhood increases with development of the Port’s West
Complex expansion project, adjacent industrial uses, and the region in
general. Total truck traffic through the Boggs Tract neighborhood is
predicted to reach 20,000 trips per day by 2025.

Without the project, traffic flow through Boggs Tract will significantly
worsen as the Port grows and industrial and related development in the
area increases. The project would improve the traffic impacts and travel
time by carrying traffic along the Crosstown Freeway extension clear to
Navy Drive.

The project would reduce the number of trucks traveling through the
Boggs Tract neighborhood. Figure 4.1 shows that the project
improvements would result in reduced traffic along the following
roadways in Boggs Tract and adjacent areas as compared to expected
conditions without implementation of the project:

     Improved Localized Air Quality - The project is expected to reduce
     Mobile Source Air Toxic emissions in the Boggs Tract neighborhood as
     Port and industrial traffic use the Crosstown Freeway extension in
     preference to local roads in the neighborhood. Emissions were estimated
     along Fresno Avenue north of the Crosstown Freeway and along West
     Washington Street east of Fresno Avenue based on the expected
     reductions in vehicle miles traveled along these roadways.

     With construction of the project, emissions are expected to decrease in
     2015 and 2035, as shown below. These percent reductions are based on
     emissions that would occur in these years if the project were not to be
     constructed:
            reactive organic gases: 52 percent reduction in 2015 and 32 percent

B.   Regional & System Planning

     1.     Identify Systems

            SR-4 is classified as a Non-Interstate Strategic Highway Network
            (STRAHNET) between I-5 and SR-99. West of I-5, SR-4 is part
            of the Interregional Road System (IRRS) that connects San
            Joaquin County with Contra Costa County. This portion of SR-4
            is also in the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA)
            network which includes California and terminal access routes.

            I-5 is part of the Eisenhower Interstate Systems. The limits of this
            system extend from San Diego, California to Blaine, Washington
            at the Canada/United States border.

            SR-4 is not part of the United States Department of Defense’s
            Rural and Single Interstate Routes in California.

2.   State Planning

     Caltrans long range plan to improve highway, passenger rail, and
     transit improvements throughout California is administered by the
     California Transportation Commission (CTC). The CTC became
     responsible for the programming and allocation of funds for the
     Proposition 1B (Prop 1B), Trade Corridor Improvement Fund
     (TCIF) after voter approval of “The Highway Safety, Traffic
     Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006” on
     November 7, 2006. The approval of this Bond Act provides
     funding to projects in compliance with CTC Guidelines. These
     guidelines require projects to be a “Trade Corridor of National
     Significance” and they must demonstrate that the project will
     improve regional air quality and not cause a negative local air
     quality impact. The Prop 1B TCIF Fund programmed the SR-4
     Crosstown Freeway Project because it is designated as a “Trade
     Corridor of National Significance” in this state with high volume
     of freight movement.

     The Project is identified in a 1968 Freeway Agreement approved
     by the then State of California Transportation Agency, Department
     of Public Works, Division of Highways and San Joaquin County.
     This agreement indicates that in 1962, the California Highway
     Commission adopted a resolution declaring the extension of State
     Route 4 as a freeway. The 1968 agreement includes an exhibit
     showing the extension of State Route 4 from its current terminus to
     Navy Drive and ultimately to West Charter Way, west of the San
     Joaquin River.

     A transportation concept report entitled, State Route 4
     Transportation Concept Report (TCR) for SR-4 prepared by
     Caltrans District 10, dated February 2002, determined that the
     portion of the facility within San Joaquin County will need
     operational improvements from a 2-lane facility to a 5-lane facility
     in order to meet Caltrans concept level of service “D” in the year
     2020.

3.   Regional Planning

     The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) for San Joaquin County
     was recently updated by SJCOG in May 2007. As stated, the 2007
     RTP is, “the San Joaquin region’s 24-year ‘statement of priorities’
     for the future transportation system.” The document outlines goals
     and objectives along with performance indicators for those goals


                          14
                                                       10-SJ-4 PM 14.4/14.8
                                                    10-SJ-4 PM T14.6/R15.7
                                                   RU 06-241, EA 10-0S1100
                                                     Program 723 & 400.100
                                                             December 2009

     and objectives. The eight guiding goals for the future projects are
     as follows:

            Improve Safety and Security
            Improve System Maintenance and Operations
            Promote Interagency Coordination, Public Participation,
            and Citizen Involvement
            Improve Quality of Life
            Improve Goods Movement
            Improve Mobility and Accessibility
            Enhance the Environment
            Maximize Cost Effectiveness

     In order to address the needs that can be met through the revenues
     identified in the 2007 RTP, projects are categorized as: Tier I or
     Tier II. Tier I projects are those that the region intends to build
     when revenue sources are identified and Tier II projects are those
     that need to be built but will have to be deferred until new funding
     sources materialize. The document’s short-range plan (2007-2019)
     shows the extension of the Crosstown Freeway to the west as a
     future 5-lane facility and Tier I project, one of high priority and
     urgent investment needs.

     In addition to its role in establishing the vision for the region’s
     future transportation system, Tier I projects programmed in the
     2007 RTP must comply with federal planning (23 CFR 450) and
     air quality (40 CFR 51 and 93) regulations. The RTP must also
     meet the air quality budgets set for the State Implementation Plan
     (SIP) as amended under the Federal Clean Air Act.

     The Project is consistent with the RTP’s statement of priorities and
     conforms to air quality requirements.

4.   Local Planning

     The City of Stockton includes SR-4 and I-5 in its 2035 General
     Plan (2007) with plans for interchange improvements and the bus
     route system. The City of Stockton anticipates a large increase in
     the demand for SR-4 and I-5 as the residents of Stockton continue
     to be employed outside of the City and County limits. It plans on
     updating the existing interchange of SR-4 and I-5 to increase the
     current LOS and shows extending the Crosstown Freeway as a 4-
     lane facility extending from Interstate 5 to the San Joaquin River.
     The General Plan also intends to widen Navy Drive from its
     existing 2-lane facility with one lane for each direction of travel to

                           15
                                                                  10-SJ-4 PM 14.4/14.8
                                                               10-SJ-4 PM T14.6/R15.7
                                                              RU 06-241, EA 10-0S1100
                                                                Program 723 & 400.100
                                                                        December 2009

               a 4-lane facility with two lanes for each direction of travel. Since
               the Project proposes to widen Navy Drive east of the BNSF
               undercrossing to just east of the intersection of Tillie Lewis Drive
               and Navy Drive. The improvements along Navy Drive are
               consistent with the City of Stockton’s 2035 General Plan and will
               alleviate any additional efforts to improve this facility in the future.

     5.        Transit Operator Planning

               The San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) Metro Express
               (Route 40) is a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in the City of
               Stockton. SJRTD plans to include SR-4, between I-5 and SR-99,
               as part of the expanded BRT network which will have dedicated
               bus lanes and greater frequency. SR-4 west of I-5 will be part of
               an Express Service route.

C.   Traffic

     1.        Current and Forecasted Traffic

               A current and forecasted traffic analysis for the Project was
               prepared in the approved Final Traffic Operations Report – State
               Route 4 West PA/ED dated July 2009 by Fehr & Peer
               Transportation Consultants. Extensive data collection efforts for
               this final traffic operations and analysis report (FTOAR) were
               undertaken in May 2008 to determine existing mainline and
               intersection operations from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM and from 3:00
               PM to 6:00 PM. The collected data reflected that the AM peak
               hour occurs from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM and the PM peak hour
               occurs from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

               To gain an understanding of existing traffic operations, Average
               Daily Traffic (ADT) volumes and Peak Hour volumes at various
               locations within the project study area were collected. These
               results are presented in Table 4.1 and 4.2, respectively.

Two models were available for use in this study, the 2007 SJCOG
RTP Model (SJCOG Model) and the City of Stockton Travel
Demand Model (City Model). The City Model was chosen as the
tool to develop the traffic projections. The City Model is a stand-
alone model that was developed in accordance with Caltrans
Travel Forecasting Guidelines and validated to year 2003
conditions to meet Caltrans and industry standards with respect to
local traffic counts and flow conditions. However, to establish a
level of consistency with SJCOG regional planning assumptions,
the land use assumptions in the City Model were adjusted to the
SJCOG Model. The use of both models is consistent with CEQA
requirements for environmental analyses and with regional
planning procedures. Based on these growth models, traffic
volumes were forecasted for the year 2035. The forecasted peak
hour traffic volumes for 2035 can be found in Table 4.4 and 4.5 for
the No Build and Project scenarios, respectively.

Comparing the forecasted peak hourly volumes between the No
Build and Project scenarios in Tables 4.4 and 4.5, it is evident that
the volumes do not change significantly. As a result, the data
indicates that the Project will not induce greater capacity within the
region.

An intersection analysis, based on 2035 forecasted volumes, was
conducted as well. The results of this analysis can be found in
Table 4.6 below.

The FTOAR found that the Project would neither improve nor
deteriorate the design year 2035 mainline operations compared to
the No Build Alternative. Under the No Build scenario, all of the
study intersections are anticipated to operate at unacceptable levels
of service (LOS E or worse) during the AM and/or PM peak hour
except for the Charter Way/Port of Stockton Expressway
intersection. Four of the study intersections that operate
unacceptably under the No Build scenario would improve
intersection LOS with the project with three intersections to
acceptable levels:
   Fresno Avenue/Hazelton Avenue improves from LOS F to
   LOS B (PM peak hour)
   Fresno Avenue/Charter Way improves from LOS F to LOS E
   (AM peak hour)
   Fresno Avenue/Washington Street improves from LOS F to
   LOS C (AM peak hour)
   El Dorado Street/SR-4 Westbound Ramps improves from LOS
   F to LOS E (AM peak hour)
   Charter Way/Port of Stockton Expressway improves from LOS
   E to LOS A (AM peak hour)
   Charter Way/Roberts Road improves from LOS F to LOS D

2.   Collision Analysis

     Caltrans staff provided accident data for SR-4 and I-5 within the
     project study area. This data shows that a total of 245 accidents
     were reported on SR-4 from October 1, 2004 to September 30,
     2007. Of these, 84 resulted in an injury. On I-5, there were 430
     accidents resulting in 126 injuries. Within the project limits, rear
     end collisions accounted for nearly 36 percent of the accidents,
     with speeding being the primary collision factor. There were no
     accidents that resulted in a fatality during the period between 2005
     and 2007.

     SR-4 has lower overall accident and injury rates than the statewide
     average for similar facilities in both directions of travel. Of the 18
     ramps studied, six had higher total accident rates than the statewide
     average, while five had higher injury rates. I-5 has a higher injury
     rate than the statewide average in the northbound direction only,
     but a lower overall accident rate in both directions. On I-5, ten of

5.   Alternatives
A.   Viable Alternatives
     The Project proposes to extend the Crosstown Freeway from its current
     terminus at Fresno Avenue southwesterly to Navy Drive. The proposed
     extension would include approximately 0.5 mile of elevated structure
     spanning over the Boggs Tract neighborhood and BNSF Railway,
     including Fresno Avenue, West Hazelton Avenue, South Los Angeles
     Avenue, Del Norte Street, South Ventura Street and West Scotts Avenue.
     At each end of the Project, the elevated structure would be supported by
     embankments. The embankment areas are roughly defined as south of the
     BNSF Railway to Navy Drive on the west end of the Project, and east of
     Fresno Avenue to the Garfield Street Overhead on the east end.

     Vehicular access beneath the elevated structure would be provided at
     Fresno Avenue, South Los Angeles Avenue, South Ventura Street, and
     West Scotts Avenue. Cul-de-sacs would be constructed on Del Norte
     Street between West Hazelton Avenue and West Scotts Avenue and on
     West Hazelton Avenue between South Los Angeles Avenue and Fresno
     Avenue, preventing through access under the proposed elevated structure.
     The proposed elevated structures from just west of Del Norte Street to
     south side of the BNSF Railway would be viaduct structures supported by
     concrete columns. The viaduct structures would vary in width from
     approximately 35 to 131 feet and vary in height from approximately 44 to
     55 feet above existing ground with its highest point over South Ventura
     Avenue and West Scotts Avenue. A fence would be placed below the
     viaduct structures to prevent pedestrian access below them. Although there
     would be no sidewalks along South Ventura Street or West Scotts Avenue,
     as under current conditions, pedestrians would be able to cross under the
     viaduct structures at these locations by walking along the roadways.

     As noted above, embankments are proposed at both ends of the elevated
     structure. The southerly embankment, containing the eastbound on-ramp
     and westbound off-ramp, would extend from Navy Drive to the viaduct
     structures just south of the BNSF Railway. This embankment, retained by
     structural walls, would vary in width from 75 to 110 feet, and in height
     from approximately 0 to 44 feet above the existing ground level. The
     embankment’s lowest point would be at Navy Drive and would increase in

                                 25
                                                        10-SJ-4 PM 14.4/14.8
                                                     10-SJ-4 PM T14.6/R15.7

                                                              December 2009

height towards the BNSF Railway. The northerly embankment for the
eastbound and westbound mainline from just east of Fresno Avenue to the
Garfield Street Overhead would include sloped embankments and some
structural walls. It would measure approximately 170-feet wide and vary
in height from approximately 0 to 24 feet above the existing ground level
with its highest point just east of Fresno Avenue.

The proposed elevated structure would have four 12-feet wide lanes (2
lanes in each direction). A third lane providing through movement for
eastbound Crosstown Freeway traffic would be reconstructed to begin east
of Fresno Avenue and conform to the existing lane at the Garfield Street
Overhead. The proposed eastbound and westbound mainline would each
have 5-foot wide inside shoulders and 10-foot wide outside shoulders. The
proposed eastbound on-ramp and westbound off-ramp, south of the BNSF
Railway, would each have 4-foot wide inside shoulders and 8-foot wide
outside shoulders. Concrete barriers and railings would be constructed and
placed on both the inside and outside shoulders at the edge of pavement
for the entire length of the elevated structure.

Navy Drive would be slightly realigned from approximately Fresno
Avenue towards the west to the existing BNSF underpass. In the
westbound direction from Fresno Avenue, Navy Drive would be widened
from one lane to two lanes and then to three lanes approaching the new
intersection with the Crosstown Freeway. West of the Crosstown Freeway
intersection, westbound Navy Drive would gradually narrow from three
lanes to two lanes and eventually to one lane at the existing BNSF
underpass. In the eastbound direction, Navy Drive would be widened from
one lane to four lanes from the existing BNSF underpass to the new
intersection with the Crosstown Freeway. East of the Crosstown Freeway
intersection, eastbound Navy Drive would carry two lanes to Tillie Lewis
Drive. East of Tillie Lewis Drive, eastbound Navy Drive would narrow to
one lane as it approaches Fresno Avenue. Both sides of Navy Drive
between the BNSF underpass and Fresno Drive would have shoulders that
could accommodate either a Class II bicycle lane or Class III bicycle
route. Between the SR-4/Navy Drive intersection and Tillie Lewis Drive, a
two-way left turn lane (TWLTL) will be provided allowing flexibility for
driveway access in this area.

The existing T-intersection of Navy Drive/Tillie Lewis Drive would be
slightly realigned to conform to the proposed improvements along Navy
Drive and to meet traffic operational and lane queuing requirements. The
Navy Drive/Tillie Lewis Drive intersection would be signalized with one
through lane and one left-turn lane in the westbound direction; one shared
left/right-turn and one left-turn lane in the northbound direction; and one
right-turn lane and one through lane in the eastbound direction.

The Project would introduce a new signalized T-intersection where the
terminus of the Crosstown Freeway extension connects with Navy Drive.
The new intersection would connect the eastbound on-ramp and
westbound off-ramp with Navy Drive. This intersection would include one
through lane and three left-turn lanes in the eastbound direction; two right-
turn lanes and one left-turn lane in the southbound direction; and two
right-turn lanes and one through lane in the westbound direction.

A new traffic signal is proposed at the currently unsignalized intersection
of Tillie Lewis Drive/West Charter Way intersection. The existing West
Charter Way TWLTL will be converted to a left-turn pocket for eastbound
traffic as it approaches Tillie Lewis Drive from approximately Army
Court to the west. Additionally, a portion of the existing TWLTL in the
westbound direction will be converted to a left-turn pocket. Other than
some minor curb-return widening as well as the aforementioned restriping
and traffic signal improvements, no other modifications are proposed at
this intersection.

Although only one geometric alignment is proposed for the extension of
the Crosstown Freeway, two structural options have been identified for the
elevated structure from just west of Del Norte Street to just east of Fresno
Avenue. The remaining portions of the Crosstown Freeway extension west
of Del Norte Street and east of Fresno Avenue are identical under both
options. These two options are called Alternatives 3A and 3B, and are
described below.

Alternative 3A
Alternative 3A proposes twin viaducts from just west of Del Norte Street
to just east of Fresno Avenue. Under Alternative 3A, the two viaducts are
each 42-feet in width and supported by concrete columns. This alternative
utilizes 39 columns in which eight columns fall within BNSF’s property.
The twin viaducts are separated by approximately 33-feet and vary in
height from approximately 24 to 55 feet above the existing ground. A
fence would be placed below the viaducts along the right-of-way boundary
to prevent pedestrian access below them. Pedestrians would be able to
cross under the viaducts at this location by using the sidewalks along
South Los Angeles Avenue. Sidewalks would be provided on the east side
of Fresno Avenue and along portions of the west side of Fresno Avenue.
For Alternative 3A geometry, see Attachment A. The Advanced Planning
Study (APS) for Alternative 3A was approved on November 30, 2009.
For Alternative 3A’s APS, see Attachment B.

Alternative 3B
Alternative 3B proposes an elevated structure supported by a retained
earth system. The retained embankment, supported by two retaining walls
on the north and south faces of the elevated structure, would measure
approximately 117-feet in width and vary in height from approximately 24
to 55 feet above the existing ground, with its highest point just west of Del
Norte Street and decreasing in height towards Fresno Avenue. This
alternative utilizes 23 columns in which eight columns fall within BNSF’s
property. A fence would be placed below the elevated structure within the
right-of-way boundary to prevent public access. Although there would be
no sidewalks along South Los Angeles Avenue, as under current
conditions, pedestrians would be able to cross under the structure at this
location by walking along the roadway. Sidewalks would be provided on
the east side of Fresno Avenue and along portions of the west side of
Fresno Avenue. For Alternative 3B geometry, see Attachment A. The
Advanced Planning Study (APS) for Alternative 3B was approved on
November 30, 2009. For Alternative 3B’s APS, see Attachment B.

No-Build Alternative
Under the No-Project Alternative, the Crosstown Freeway would not be
extended to the west, and the proposed improvements would not be made
between Fresno Avenue and Navy Drive. Access between I-5 and the Port
would continue in the Boggs Tract neighborhood on Fresno Avenue
between West Washington Street and the existing Crosstown
Freeway/Fresno Avenue/West Hazelton Avenue ramps and on West
Washington Street west of Fresno Avenue. With the planned dredging, the
development of the Port’s West Complex and regional growth, traffic
through Boggs Tract would increase.


1.     Proposed Engineering Features

       Engineering features including horizontal and vertical alignment,
       typical sections, and general geometrics of intersections are
       discussed in the previous section. To follow is a brief discussion
       of other engineering features that are common or unique to
       Alternatives 3A and 3B.

               The entire corridor in both alternatives will be access-
               controlled right-of-way, with breaks at the intersecting
               streets that will maintain traffic including Navy Drive,
               West Scotts Avenue/South Ventura Street, South Los
               Angeles Avenue, and Fresno Avenue.

                                               December 2009

In both alternatives, the on- and off-ramps at Fresno
Avenue would be removed and new on-and off-ramps
would be constructed at Navy Drive. The proposed
westbound off-ramp and eastbound on-ramp run parallel
with each other and terminate at Navy Drive,
approximately 740-feet west of the intersection of Tillie
Lewis Drive and Navy Drive. Both ramps would comprise
the northerly leg of the signalized T-intersection formed at
Navy Drive. Within this parallel segment, the Project has
evaluated and incorporated glare screens that would be
placed along the top of the concrete safety-shaped barrier
(Type 60 and 60C) which segregates the on- and off-ramps
per the recommendation stated in the Caltrans Traffic
Manual, Section 7-04.8 – Glare Screens. The placement of
the glare screens will be further refined during the PS&E
phase which will incorporate additional Caltrans
recommendations and the public’s opinion.

All three signalized intersections, and mainline
improvements in both alternatives, support STAA-Long
truck-turning templates and maneuvers.

Concrete barriers (Type 60 and Type 60C) are used in both
alternatives to separate the ramps. Concrete barriers (Type
736) are used in both alternatives on the viaduct structures
and retaining walls. Double thrie-beam barriers are used in
the median area of Alternative 3B between Del Norte Street
and Fresno Avenue

The proposed improvements noted above will generally
maintain the existing onsite drainage pattern with new
drainage facilities to accommodate the freeway extension.
The Project will add approximately 3.3 acres of additional
impervious area to the existing 6.8 acres impervious area.
Drainage improvements are proposed for the purpose of
conveying the additional runoff introduced by the freeway
extension to ensure that deficiencies of the existing
infrastructure and drainage systems will not be exacerbated
by the Project.

Drainage from the proposed improvements north of the
BNSF railroad corridor will be conveyed via drainage
culverts, roadside ditches, and down drains from the
elevated roadway. From these proposed outfalls, runoff
will be conveyed along a biofiltration swale at ground level

within Boggs Tract and then into a detention basin located
just west of Fresno Avenue. From the detention basin, flow
will be conveyed into the existing underground drainage
system along Fresno Avenue towards the existing pump
station located at the corner of Fresno Avenue and West
Scotts Avenue which eventually discharges to Mormon
Slough. Given that the peak discharge rate to Mormon
Slough is controlled by the pump station, there will be no
increase in the peak discharge rate the existing outfall.

Drainage from the proposed improvements south of the
BNSF railroad corridor will be conveyed by down drains
from the elevated roadway, similar to the northern
segment. Down drains will discharge to drain lines or
roadside ditches that will convey flow to a stormwater
treatment biofiltration swale. The biofiltration swale will be
located adjacent to the BNSF railroad corridor and will
discharge into a detention basin located in Caltrans right of
way at the northwest corner of the SR-4 westbound off-
ramp and Navy Drive. From this detention basin, flow will
be conveyed to a proposed, underground drainage line
(gravity) along Navy Drive, travelling easterly, towards
Tillie Lewis Drive. This drain line will also receive runoff
from Navy Drive; similar to existing conditions, Navy
Drive will be crowned, however curb and gutter will
replace the existing roadside ditches and swales along
either side of Navy Drive, east of Tillie Lewis Drive to just
west of the Navy Drive/SR-4 Intersection. Proposed
drainage inlets along the curb and gutters will connect to
the proposed drainage culvert running down Navy Drive
and relieve roadway drainage in this segment. Private
properties on the north side of Navy Drive in this area will
also connect to the proposed drainage line, instead of
outfalling to the roadside ditches as existing conditions
permit. A pump (lift) station is proposed at the southeast
corner of the intersection of Tillie Lewis Drive and Navy
Drive and will convey this drainage to the existing roadside
ditch located on the west side of Tillie Lewis Drive. The
pump station is proposed on a utility easement on this
property and will be owned and operated by the City of
Stockton. Gravity drainage systems along Navy Drive
(without a pump station at Tillie Lewis Drive) will be
continually pursued throughout the PA&ED process.

Comparable to current conditions, drainage just west of the
Navy Drive/SR-4 Intersection, adjacent to COS-MUD, will
be intercepted by a network of curb and gutters, inlets, and
culverts that ultimately connect to the treatment plant.

East of Tillie Lewis Drive, the existing roadside ditch on
the north side of Navy Drive will remain. Operational and
unaffected by the roadway widening, the ditch will
continue to flow westerly along Navy Drive until crossing
beneath Navy Drive to the existing roadside ditch located
on the west side of Tillie Lewis Drive. The Navy Drive
roadside crossing currently consists of twin 18-inch
diameter lines that cross over the sewer line and discharge
to a roadside ditch on the west side of Tillie Lewis Drive.
The sewer line that runs east to west on the south side of
Navy Drive, transitions from a 72-inch diameter sewer line
to an 84-inch diameter sewer line at a manhole located at
the crown of Tillie Lewis Drive. The existing culverts that
cross the 84-inch diameter sewer line will be abandoned
and the headwall in the roadside ditch shall be slightly
shifted to the east. The proposed drainage culverts crossing
Navy Drive will be realigned toward the south over the 72-
inch diameter segment of the sewer line, allowing the
placement of shallow concrete box culverts to be used to
convey flow. Once the culverts cross Navy Drive and span
the 72-inch sewer line, the culverts will turn due-west
across Tillie Lewis Drive to the existing outfall location
along the existing westerly roadside ditch.

The existing roadside ditch and culverts on the west side of
Tillie Lewis Drive will also remain operational and
unaffected by the proposed project improvements and will
ultimately convey all drainage into the existing pump
station that discharges into the San Joaquin River located
adjacent to West Charter Way just east of the San Joaquin
River. Given that the peak discharge rate to the San Joaquin
River is controlled by the San Joaquin River Pump Station,
there will be no increase in the peak discharge rate to the
existing outfall. A Regional Drainage study will be
conducted to demonstrate that, with proposed detention,
there is no increase in water levels along the system of
culverts and ditches upstream of the San Joaquin River
Pump Station at Charter Way.

2.   Nonstandard Mandatory and Advisory Design Features

     The project will be designed in accordance to the Caltrans
     Highway Design Manual – Sixth Edition (HDM). The proposed
     alternative has no nonstandard mandatory design features,
     however, includes two nonstandard advisory design features that
     are listed in Table 5.1.

3.   Interim Features

     There are no interim features proposed in this Project.

4.   High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) (Bus and Carpool) Lanes

     The project proposes single-occupancy vehicle lanes only and
     HOV lanes are not proposed. However, HOV lane conversion or
     implementation in the future is not precluded.

5.   Ramp Metering

     Ramp metering at the ramps is not proposed for this project.

6.   California Highway Patrol (CHP) Enforcement Areas

     CHP enforcement areas are not proposed for this Project.

7.   Park and Ride Facilities

     Park and ride facilities are not proposed for this Project.

8.   Utility and Other Owner Involvement

     Coordination with utility companies began with requests for as-
     built mapping and record data and was submitted to the following
     utility companies:

            City of Stockton – Sanitary Sewer
            Pacific Gas & Electric – Gas, Electricity
            Comcast – Cable Television/Communications
            AT&T – Telephone/Communications
            California Water Service – Water
            Kinder Morgan – Petroleum

     Since the proposed extension will be elevated, utility conflicts
     were primarily identified with subsurface utilities and the locations
     of proposed structural or footing locations for walls, embankments
     and column foundations. Additional conflicts were identified with
     overhead utilities and the elevated viaduct, as well as widening
     improvements along local City and County streets.

     Determination of liability associated with utility relocations is
     primarily anticipated to be a 50%/50% split between the State and

     the utility owner under preexisting freeway master agreements. In
     some instances, the costs for relocation will be 100% utility owner
     when the facility in question is currently within State right-of-way
     under an encroachment permit. Existing municipal utilities in City
     or County streets (i.e. sewer) fall under California Streets and
     Highway Code and relocation costs will be 100% State.

     In some instances, the Project is proposing to leave existing
     utilities in place within Caltrans proposed access-controlled right-
     of-way. This will result in existing and new transverse, and in
     some instances, longitudinal utility encroachments within State
     right-of-way. Provided the utilities are not in conflict with the
     proposed roadway or structural improvements and meet Caltrans
     Policy on High and Low Risk Underground Facilities within
     Highway Rights of Way, an Exception to Caltrans Encroachment
     Policy will be sought through the District and Division of Design
     (DOD) Chief.

     Notices to owners (verification) were submitted in September and
     October 2009. A Draft Longitudinal Utility Encroachment
     Exception (LUEE) Report was submitted to Caltrans in November
     2009 and will be approved or resolved before the Final Project
     Report (FPR).

9.   Railroad Involvement

     Proposed improvements within the railroad right-of-way, including
     structural concept of the viaducts, was coordinated with both
     BNSF and CCTC officials to ensure project compliance with
     railroad design standards and requirements. Additional issues such
     as permanent and temporary (construction) design standards, work
     windows for construction staging purposes, right-of-way
     acquisitions, and future BNSF projects were discussed to identify
     potential issues and have been developed and considered in the
     Advance Planning Study (APS)

     As shown on Exhibit 4-EX-6 in the Right-of-Way Data Sheet (See
     Attachment E), the district railroad liaison has concurred that a
     Construction and Management (C&M) Agreement and Service
     Agreement (covering Design and Construction), will be required to
     clear the project. Furthermore, both temporary (construction) and
     permanent (foundation) easements will be needed for right-of-way
     needs to place the viaduct structures in the BNSF corridor.

10.   Highway Planting

      New highway and replacement planting will be required for this
      project per Caltrans policy (Project Development Procedures
      Manual, Chapter 29 – Landscape Architecture) and as prescribed
      in the Environmental Document regarding mitigation for visual
      impacts associated with project construction. All highway planting
      will include a three-year Plant Establishment Period (PEP). The
      estimated cost estimate for the new highway planting will exceed
      $200,000; therefore, proposed highway planting will be performed
      under a separate contract. Both the parent (highway) contract and
      the separate highway planting contract are programmed and funded
      through the same TCIF, Measure K and RTIF funds identified in
      the TCIF Baseline Agreement (See Section 8, Programming, for
      additional information). The separate planting contract will be
      awarded within two years after the parent Highway Construction
      contract is accepted.

      Landscaping is proposed within the Boggs Tract Area of the
      project, primarily between Fresno Avenue and Ventura Avenue.
      Landscaping will be provided within Caltrans right-of-way behind
      a 6-foot high chain link fence. A maintenance road (composed of
      aggregate base or paved hot mix asphalt (HMA) to access the
      landscaping areas, is proposed for both Alternatives 3A and 3B.

      Seventy-five percent of the species composition of planted areas
      shall reflect species that are native and indigenous to the Plan Area
      and California, and under no circumstances will any invasive plant
      species be used at this location. Use of native species promotes a
      visual character of California that is being lost through
      development and reliance on non-native ornamental plant species.
      Native plant species can be used to create attractive spaces, high in
      aesthetic quality, that are also drought-tolerant.

      The irrigation system shall be a Remote Irrigation Control System
      (RICS). The RICS shall utilize smart watering technologies that
      evaluate existing site conditions and plant material against real-
      time weather conditions, to avoid over-watering and reduce overall
      water usage. In addition, the RICS shall have the capacity to
      detect system abnormalities, the capability to shut off water flow to
      damaged or broken equipment and the ability to alert maintenance
      personnel to the specific problem and location for quick and
      efficient response.

      Alternative 3A proposes landscaping strips located on the outside
      of the viaduct structures’ footprint and adjacent to the chain link
      fence, for a width of approximately 15-feet. It is assumed that no
      landscaping will be located underneath the viaduct. The total
      amount of landscaped area for Alternative 3A is approximately 2.9
      acres. A maintenance road shall be located between the viaduct
      structures, and will provide ample access to the landscaping areas
      on either side of the viaduct structures.

      Alternative 3B proposes a 15-foot buffer between the retaining
      wall or toe of slope and chain link fence. Adjacent to the fence
      would be a 5-foot wide landscaping strip and a 10-foot wide
      maintenance road. Landscaping is also proposed along the
      retaining wall embankment areas, between the retaining wall and
      maintenance road. The total coverage of landscaped area for
      Alternative 3B is approximately 3.6 acres.

      Landscaping will be provided on embankment side-slopes in both
      alternatives including the embankments east of Fresno Avenue
      along the north and south side of SR-4. Landscaping is also
      proposed in Caltrans right of way at the southeast corner of Los
      Angeles Street and Hazelton Avenue in both alternatives.

      Locked access gates will be provided to secure the area and
      provide ingress/egress for Caltrans maintenance. Gates would be
      located at the local roads (Fresno Avenue, South Los Angeles
      Avenue, Ventura Avenue, and West Scotts Avenue) as well as the
      cul-de-sacs at Del Norte Street and West Hazelton Avenue. From
      the chain link gates at the local roads, there should be no plantings
      for 40 to 50 feet, to avoid maintenance issues associated with
      access and errant vehicles.

11.   Erosion Control/NPDES Storm Water

      The Project will comply with Caltrans Storm Water Management
      Plan (SWMP). The SWMP requires the project to comply with the
      Caltrans statewide National Pollution Discharge Elimination
      System (NPDES) permit (MS4 Phase I and/or II). Coordination
      with the Central Valley (Region 5) Regional Water Control Board
      (RWCB), County of San Joaquin, and City of Stockton will
      continue through the design phase to discuss storm water quality
      issues and the application of the appropriate design pollution
      prevention, treatment, and construction site Best Management
      Practices (BMPs) for temporary and permanent controls.

      All disturbed soils within the project limits will receive the
      appropriate temporary and permanent erosion control measures in
      accordance with Caltrans Standard Specifications.            Native
      perennial hydroseed mix shall be applied at all locations planned
      for plantings that have exposed soil and steep slopes, to prevent
      soil erosion, reduce water pollution, and help preserve the existing
      landscape character. Construction site temporary BMPs will be
      proposed by the contractor and approved by Caltrans through a
      Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).

      A Draft Storm Water Data Report (SWDR), dated August 2009,
      was prepared for the PA&ED phase for this project summarizing
      the actions required to comply with the NPDES permit. The final
      PA&ED SWDR will be processed and included as an attachment
      in the FPR. The SWDR will continue to be developed and updated
      as the project proceeds into the PS&E phase.

12.   Noise Barriers

      The State Route 4 Crosstown Freeway Extension Project - Noise
      Study Report (NSR), dated August 2009, was prepared to evaluate
      noise impacts and mitigation under the requirements of the
      California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The NSR was
      approved by Allam Alhabaly and Gail Miller at Caltrans Central
      Region, in November 2009.

      The NSR has been prepared in general conformance with the
      Caltrans Traffic Noise Analysis Protocol for New Highway
      Construction, Reconstruction, and Retrofit barrier Projects
      (Protocol) (California Department of Transportation 2006). This
      Protocol also provides Caltrans policy of implementing Title 23,
      Part 772 of the Code of Federal Regulations (23 CFR 772). Per
      this Protocol, the NSR defines single-family and multifamily home
      residences, places of worship, and school outdoor areas as Activity
      Category B land uses and commercial and industrial areas in the
      study area as Activity Category C uses.

      A field noise investigation was conducted to describe and
      document existing noise conditions. The Federal Highway
      Administration (FHWA) Traffic Noise Prediction Model Version
      2.5 was used in this analysis to evaluate traffic noise conditions for
      existing and design-year conditions.

      Under design-year with the Project, substantial increases in noise
      levels are predicted for Activity Category B land uses in the study

area. Therefore, significant noise impacts are predicted to occur
under CEQA. Because noise impacts are predicted to result from
implementation of the Project, consideration of noise mitigation is
required.

Noise barriers along the future Crosstown Freeway alignment were
evaluated for Activity Category B land uses to the north and south
of the Project. The analysis found that at land uses exposed to
substantial increases in noise under CEQA, a maximum of 4 dB of
noise reduction could be achieved by a barrier design with a height
of 14-feet. This is less than the 5 dB minimum noise reduction
required for noise mitigation to be considered feasible. Therefore,
noise impacts at Activity Category B land uses predicted to result
from implementation of the Project are considered significant and
unavoidable.      Table 5.2 summarizes traffic noise impact
conclusions under CEQA.

Although noise mitigation in the form of noise barriers is not
considered feasible as defined in the Protocol, other measures,
such as installation of sound-insulating windows and doors in
individual buildings, may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Typically, noise mitigation of this type is designed to provide at
least 5 dB of indoor noise reduction, but this goal may not be

      achievable in all cases. Forced air ventilation systems in
      individual dwelling units may be considered on a case-by-case
      basis also.

      Although the implementation of these measures would benefit
      residents by reducing interior noise, they would not reduce
      significant traffic noise impacts to a less-than-significant level, and
      impacts would remain significant and unavoidable.

13.   Non-Motorized and Pedestrian Features

      The Project incorporates non-motorized and pedestrian features at
      Navy Drive and Fresno Avenue. The improvements at Navy Drive
      include a 5-foot wide shoulder along both sides of Navy Drive,
      sufficient for a Class II or III bicycle route. The improvements
      along Fresno Avenue and South Los Angeles Avenue include a 5-
      foot wide sidewalk along both sides of the roadway that pass
      beneath the Project. A portion of a 5’ wide sidewalk along Navy
      Drive, in front of the COS-MUD facility, will be replaced. Curb
      ramps that are Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible
      and compliant, will be installed as required along the proposed
      sidewalks.

14.   Needed Roadway Rehabilitation and Upgrading

      A majority of the existing roadways within the project limits will
      be removed or widened. Widening along Navy Drive, Tillie Lewis
      Drive, and the local street improvements within the Boggs Tract
      neighborhood will either conform to existing pavement structural
      sections or be constructed to meet the appropriate TI and R values
      of the preliminary geotechnical report. Further analysis of existing
      pavement at these roadway locations will be required during the
      PS&E phase in order to determine pavement structural section and
      whether roadway rehabilitation is needed.

      A preliminary geotechnical report prepared in the PSR was
      revalidated for this PA&ED. For SR-4 mainline improvements
      outside of the viaduct areas, an R-value of 15 was assumed since
      the pavement structural section will be primarily built on new or
      existing embankment sections. Both rigid and flexible pavement
      sections were provided based on this R-value, as well as the
      various TI values provided by the Engineer. For additional
      information, see the revised Preliminary Geotechnical Report
      Crosstown Connector, dated November 2009 by Parikh
      Consultants Inc.

      For the SR-4 freeway extension, as well as the proposed SR-
      4/Navy Drive intersection, a Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA)
      was prepared and approved in November 2009 The report
      determined a Rigid Pavement Design - Jointed Plain Concrete
      Pavement (40-year) resulted to be the most cost effective option
      for the rehabilitation program with a Total Life Cycle Analysis
      Cost of $6,396,700. In comparison, a Flexible Pavement Design –
      Hot Mix Asphalt w/ Rubberized Asphalt Concrete (20-Year) has a
      Total Life Cycle Analysis Cost of $7,678,870. For more
      information, please refer to the SR-4 Crosstown Freeway
      Extension Project Life Cycle Cost Analysis Summary
      Memorandum, dated November 2009; an LCCA summary form is

15.   Needed Structure Rehabilitation and Upgrading

      The Project does not impact any existing structures within the
      project limits; therefore, structure rehabilitation and upgrading will
      not be required.

16.   Cost Estimates

      The estimated costs associated with Alternatives 3A and 3B are
      presented in Tables 5.3 and 5.4, respectively. Construction costs
      represented in the tables are based on the Preliminary Cost
      Estimates Summary for each alternative which are included in

            The cost estimates presented are values based on current
            information which is preliminary in nature. Risks include the
            fluctuating price of crude oil, steel, paving asphalt, and concrete
            which can influence the estimate on large projects. Other risks
            include the estimated cost of environmental mitigation which
            depends on mitigation performed; the potential for contaminated
            groundwater and/or soil which will be determined in the final
            design phase; and the escalation rate which could increase
            depending on the state of the economy.

     17.    Right-of-Way Data

            Currently, the Project will require full and partial acquisition of 49
            and 14 properties, respectively. The majority of the parcels north
            of the BNSF railroad are residential homes within Boggs Tract.
            South of the railroad, the impacted parcels are
            commercial/industrial businesses. The project alignment was
            designed to minimize impacts to all local residents and business.
            Ingress and egress patterns for the local roads will be altered to
            accommodate the freeway extension. Within Boggs Tract, Del
            Norte Street and West Hazelton Avenue will be modified into cul-
            de-sacs. On Navy Drive, many driveways will be restricted to
            right-turn in and right-turn out movements due to the roadway
            modifications to accommodate the SR-4 ramps terminus and
            forecasted traffic volumes. Between the SR-4/Navy Drive
            intersection and Tillie Lewis Drive, a two-way left turn lane
            (TWLTL) will be provided allowing flexibility for driveway access
            in this area.      A utility easement for the proposed pump (lift)
            station located on the southeast corner of Tillie Lewis Drive and
            Navy Drive will be necessary. Additionally, the relocation of gas,
            water, sewer, electrical, telephone, cable television, and joint
            utility facilities will be necessary to accommodate the proposed
            project. During construction, temporary construction easements
            (TCEs) will be necessary within the BNSF railroad corridor and a
            few adjacent parcels north and south of the railway. A Right-of-
            Way Data Sheet, which covers both Alternatives 3A and 3B, was
            prepared for this project and is included in Attachment E.

B.   Rejected Alternatives
     As discussed previously under Project History, two alternatives which met
     the need and purpose of the Project’s supplemental PSR or PA&ED were
     studied, but rejected:

            Alternative 1, included in the Project’s Supplemental PSR, and
            Alternative 2, a variation of Alternative 1.

     The following criteria were considered in developing and screening these
     two alternative geometric alignments:

            ability to meet the project’s purpose and need;
            traffic operations;
            engineering feasibility related to meeting jurisdictional standards
            and safety constructability of the proposed design;
            cost of construction;
            impacts on BNSF railroad operations;
            long-term maintenance requirements;
            creation of operational or safety problems;
            adverse social, economic, or environmental impacts;
            previously rejected at an earlier stage such the regional planning;
            and/or
            a combination of reasons listed above that, when considered
            together with other criteria, present a compelling reason to reject
            an alternative.

     Although Alternatives 1 and 2 meet the Project’s need and purpose, they
     have been eliminated from further evaluation and discussion since they
     have greater impacts than Alternative 3 (Project) related to prohibitive
     construction costs; adverse social, economic, and environmental impacts;
     and operational and safety problems.

     Due to the current alignment of the Crosstown Freeway and its terminus at
     Fresno Avenue, Alternatives 1 and 2 (as well as Alternative 3) included
     the same alignment through Boggs Tract. These alternatives included
     different alignments for the portion of the Project south of the BNSF
     Railway, but with the exception of the locations and lane configurations of
     the ramp intersections, the widening improvements along Navy Drive,
     West Charter Way, and Tillie Lewis Drive were roughly comparable.

6.   Considerations Requiring Discussion
A.   Hazardous Waste
     A Phase I Initial Site Assessment (ISA) was prepared by Parikh
     Consultants, Inc. in November 2007 for this project during the Project
     Initiation Document (PID) phase to identify the potential for the following
     hazardous materials to be present within the project vicinity.
     Subsequently, an update and revalidation of the Phase I ISA document
     was prepared by Geocon in October 2009 and approved by Caltrans for
     the PA&ED phase focusing on the new limits

The ISA that was documented in November 2007 concluded the
following:

   Surface soil samplings for aerially deposited lead (ADL) should be
   conducted adjacent to roadways proposed for construction activities.
   Asbestos and lead-containing paint (LCP) surveys should be
   performed prior to demolition of residential and industrial buildings
   proposed for right-of-way acquisition.
   Soil sampling for pesticides, arsenic, mercury, and herbicides should
   be conducted on and south of the BNSF railroad tracks that may be
   impacted during the construction project.
   If construction activities are proposed at current or former auto
   dismantlers properties, surface soils should be sampled for metals,
   petroleum hydrocarbons, and solvents.
   Caltrans should be sensitive to remedial progress currently underway
   at the Koppel Stockton Terminal facility (located at West Scotts
   Avenue and Ventura Avenue).
   Surface soils adjacent to the electrical transformers near the BNSF
   railroad bridge over Navy Drive should be sampled for
   polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

The results of the approved Phase I ISA indicated that properties slated for
full and/or partial acquisition within the project environmental study area
(ESA), require further evaluation for potential hazardous waste that could
impact the design and construction of the project. The Project will require
right-of-way acquisition and further potential contaminated property
evaluations, to determine impact on project costs, potential responsible
party liability, and soil and groundwater material management and
remediation during construction. From a hazardous waste and associated
cost perspective, the updated ISA identified potential contaminated
properties that should be taken into consideration. Furthermore, additional
environmental inquiry (parcel owner interviews/private parcel
survey/document disclosure) and preliminary site investigations should be
performed to further evaluate potential and documented environmental
impairments within the proposed project boundaries. The following
conclusions and actions for further-testing were noted and recommended
in the updated Phase I ISA:

       ADL may be present in shallow soil within the unpaved shoulders
       and median in the existing SR-4 right-of-way and along the
       unpaved surface street shoulders within the ESA. An ADL study
       should be performed to determine lead levels in planned
       excavation areas and associated soil material management and
       disposal requirement.

                                                       Program 723 & 400.100
                                                               December 2009

       Documented groundwater contamination associated with
       underground storage tank fuel releases and facility operations were
       identified in the ISA update on three facilities located at and in the
       vicinity of the project ESA that have the potential to impact the
       groundwater in the vicinity of the planned improvement project.
       Further evaluation of the groundwater quality and depth within the
       project ESA was recommended and should be based on planned
       construction de-watering disposal options and potential exposure
       of workers to contaminated media.

       Some properties proposed for full or partial acquisition are either
       currently or have had a history of use for agricultural purposes and
       residual agricultural chemicals may be present in soils at these
       properties. Additionally, BNSF railroad tracks bisect the project
       ESA. Potential accidental releases or impacts from current railroad
       construction and historical operations (e.g., ballast and herbicide
       weed control) may have impacted the BNSF right-of-way within
       the project ESA.

       Structures present on properties proposed for full acquisition may
       contain asbestos-containing materials and LCP. An asbestos and
       LCP survey must first be conducted at buildings proposed for
       demolition as part of the improvement project to satisfy San
       Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District requirements
       (asbestos) and demolition waste disposal characterization (asbestos
       and lead).

       Potential petroleum hydrocarbon impacts to soil from historical
       operation of the Kinder Morgan Energy petroleum pipeline should
       be evaluated for construction work at this location. Kinder Morgan
       Energy should be notified in advance of any planned excavation at
       or near the petroleum pipeline adjacent to the railroad spur
       bisecting Navy Drive or railroad right-of-way within project ESA.

       The results of the site reconnaissance, historical and regulatory file
       research, and prior field investigations have indicated the potential
       presence of closed Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) at and near
       the properties proposed for full and partial acquisition. If
       encountered during construction, undocumented USTs, septic
       systems and domestic/agricultural/oil wells should be properly
       removed or abandoned in accordance with San Joaquin County
       requirements.

Although not required, the PDT has chosen to proceed with a Phase II ISA
at specific locations to minimize potential risks and costs to the project.

     Site investigations will be performed along the roadway shoulders of an
     existing segment of Navy Drive, and at specific industrial and railroad
     properties within the project limits. Post site field investigation and
     analysis, a soil and groundwater site investigation report will be prepared
     to present the background information, field observations, laboratory data,
     data evaluation, and conclusions.

B.   Value Analysis
     The PDT will conduct a formal Value Analysis (VA) Study after approval
     of the DPR/DED and prior to the submittal of the FPR/FED.

C.   Resource Conservation
     The proposed project will improve traffic operations both to and from the
     Port of Stockton, from SR-4 and I-5. As a byproduct, traffic operations
     within the Boggs Tract neighborhood, are also improved. The lessening
     of congestion and related traffic delay is associated with faster average
     travel speeds and more efficient vehicle operation compared to No Build
     conditions. Improved operations are likely to reduce emissions (air
     quality) as well as vehicle energy use, whether in the form of petroleum
     fuels or alternative sources of energy. It is anticipated that this project will
     have a beneficial or, in worse case, a neutral effect on direct energy use.

     Also related to resource conservation, air quality, and energy use, is the
     SR-4 ramp profile. Reduced from 5% to 4% in the eastbound SR-4
     direction, the moderated ascending slope will benefit both truck traffic
     from the Port of Stockton, as well as other vehicles using the facility.

     Other than asphalt concrete (AC) or JPCP on the existing SR-4 on and off-
     ramps at Fresno Avenue, there are no major facilities that can be salvaged,
     relocated, recycled, or reused from this project. Both AC or JPCP shall be
     removed, recycled, and stockpiled for use on this project, or other State
     projects. In the event that mechanically stabilized embankment (MSE)
     walls are used for the retaining walls in the Project, recycled materials will
     not be permitted for use in as MSE backfill. However, wherever possible,
     other existing roadway items such as signs, overhead sign structure/panels,
     electroliers, guardrails, and other associated hardware can be relocated,
     reused, or stockpiled to be used at a later date.

     Due to the import nature of this project and its proposed structures,
     embankment material (including ADL) can be accepted from this and
     other projects and will facilitate resource conservation. Similarly, other
     reused or recycled products, such as the aforementioned recycled AC, AB,
     and rubberized hot mix asphalt can be used during construction to
     minimize the consumption, destruction, and disposal of nonrenewable
     resources.

D.   Right-of-Way Issues
     The project will require both partial and full right-of-way acquisitions for
     the extension of the SR-4 Crosstown Freeway. The freeway shall be
     access-control right-of-way with breaks beneath the raised structure for
     the local streets (Fresno Ave, South Los Angles Ave, and West Scotts
     Ave/Ventura Ave), driveways (along Fresno Ave), and alleyways (Fresno
     Ave) that are proposed to remain open for vehicular, pedestrian or bicycle
     traffic. The intersection of SR-4 and Navy Drive shall also be access-
     control right-of-way meeting the minimum separation requirements for
     adjacent driveways or roadways at an intersection.

     Right-of-way for easements (both temporary and permanent) has been
     assessed on the various properties. Permanent foundation easements in
     BNSF’s right-of-way will be required for the foundations and columns
     spanning the railroad tracks. Additionally, temporary construction
     easements have been identified in the BNSF corridor. The rights for an
     aerial easement (over BNSF) will be covered as part of their encroachment
     permit to Caltrans. A construction and maintenance agreement, through
     BNSF, will need to be developed and executed between BNSF and
     Caltrans to address these right-of-way requirements in their corridor.

     New or displaced utility easements, if required, will be a function of utility
     coordination, verification, and notice to relocate, which is currently
     ongoing.

     Right-of-way data sheets and exhibits have been prepared based on the
     scope of work described in the previous sections and the plans provided in
     this project report. The right-of-way needs are the same for both
     Alternatives 3A and 3B. For additional information, see Attachment E,
     Right-of-Way Data Sheet.

     The approved Relocation Impact Report (RIR), dated November 2009
     found that the Project would result in 49 full parcel acquisitions that would
     displace up to 36 single-family residential units; one duplex residential
     units (a total of two residences); and six nonresidential uses (one
     convenience store, two auto salvage businesses, one bulk sugar
     transportation business, one truck washing company, and machine
     equipment and parts business). The proposed project would also require
     up to 14 partial acquisitions of other nonresidential parcels, resulting in a
     loss of parking spaces and storage space for businesses. However, based
     on preliminary engineering drawings, it is expected that the loss of parking
     and storage at these businesses would not result in relocation of the
     businesses. All relocation activities would be conducted in accordance
     with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition
     Policies Act of 1970, as amended. Relocation resources will be available

     to all displacees without discrimination. For additional information,
     please refer to the approved Relocation Impact Report, dated November
     2009.

     Although the project is not located in an area of high land value, due to the
     nature of the improvements (raised viaduct structures), there is an inherent
     opportunity and potential for future airspace leases. Specifically, in the
     vicinity of the businesses located along Navy Drive, the profile for both
     alternatives offers approximately 35 to 45 feet of vertical clearance
     between the bridge soffit and original ground and is therefore compatible
     for airspace lease areas for parking and storage. Similarly, with the
     contiguous viaduct concept proposed in Alternative 3A, the areas between
     Fresno Avenue, South Los Angeles Avenue, and West Scotts
     Avenue/Ventura Avenue) offer significant vertical clearance on the order
     of 22 to 55 feet between the viaduct soffit and existing ground. There
     have been no discussions with private or public (local agency) entities and
     their willingness to financially commit for added costs that may be
     required. Currently – these areas are proposed to be fenced off and
     accessible only by Caltrans and their maintenance workers, however, the
     areas in these vicinities can easily be modified (during design or after) to
     address the needs and requirements associated with future airspace leases.

E.   Environmental Issues
     The draft environmental impact report (DEIR) has been prepared in
     accordance with Caltrans environmental procedures, as well as State and
     Federal environmental regulations. The attached DEIR is the appropriate
     document for the proposal and can be found in Attachment C.

     The following environmental reports and technical studies have been
     prepared in support of the DEIR:

        Historical Resources Compliance Report/Historical              Resources
        Evaluation Report (HRCR/HRER)

        Preliminary Geotechnical Report (PGR)

     Major potential impacts from alternatives and “mitigation” measures to
     reduce significant impacts to a less-than-significant level for the Project
     are discussed in the DEIR Summary and Section 3.3, Mitigation Measures
     for Significant Impacts Under the California Environmental Quality Act.

     In some instances, impacts will remain significant and avoidable even
     with implementation of the mitigation measures identified. However, all
     mitigation measures committed to in the DEIR will be incorporated into
     the Project. For additional information, see DEIR in Attachment C.

F.   Air Quality Conformity
     Each project alternative is fully compatible with the design concept and
     scope described in the current Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) as well
     as the current Federal Regional Transportation Improvement Program
     (FRTIP) which the regional agency has determined to conform to the State
     Implementation Plan (SIP) for air quality.

G.   Title VI Considerations
     Based on the DEIR, all considerations under Title VI of the Civil Rights
     Act of 1964 and related statutes have been included in the project.

     The proposed project has no potential to cause disproportionately high and
     adverse effects on any minority or low-income populations.
     Transportation benefits of the proposed project would accrue to all area
     residents and businesses.

     Areas of improvements, in which pedestrians have full access, will be
     fully ADA accessible and compliant.

     Noise impacts would be distributed evenly through the project area, and
     they would not be concentrated in any area of minority or low-income
     residents.

H.   Noise Abatement Decision Report Section
     Given the Project is not federally funded; a Noise Abatement Decision
     Report (NADR) is not required.

7.    Other Considerations as Appropriate
 A.   Public Hearing Process
      A public information meeting was held in October 2009 to present
      Alternatives 3A and 3B for public comment. Additionally, as mentioned
      previously, upon the approval of the DEIR, an opportunity for a public
      hearing or meeting is required and will be provided as part of the 45-day
      public review and comment period for the DEIR. The public review period
      and public hearing is tentatively scheduled for late January of 2010.

 B.   Route Matters
      SR-4 is currently an access-controlled facility which ends at Fresno
      Avenue. The Project will be access-controlled for the entire extension
      from Fresno Avenue to Navy Drive, with breaks permitted for local roads
      passing beneath the raised freeway section, including Fresno Avenue,
      South Los Angeles Avenue, and West Scotts Avenue/Ventura Avenue.

      A Freeway Agreement, dated July 16, 1968, for State Route 4 exists
      between Caltrans, City of Stockton and San Joaquin County. This
      agreement that adopts an additional portion of Route 4, declares that “the
      section of State Highway Route 4 (formerly Route 75) in San Joaquin
      County, Road 10-SJ-4, between Wilhoit Road and Route 99 (formerly
      Route 4) to be a freeway.” This agreement also identifies three
      interchanges at Fresno Avenue, Navy Drive, and Charter Way. As part
      of this project and its improvements, the freeway agreement will need to
      be revised (superseded or replaced), to update the limits of the route
      adoption of SR-4 and eliminate the interchange at Fresno Avenue, with
      Caltrans, City, and County consensus. All other Project components are in
      compliance with the current Freeway Agreement, including the
      interchange at Navy Drive since the Chapter 27 of the HDM (New Public
      Road Connection) states “When an original Freeway Agreement is
      executed to cover the route adoption, staged construction with an interim
      at-grade intersection is permissible until high traffic volumes, safety, or
      other factors justify construction of the interchange.”

      Although parts of the existing SR-4 corridor (ramps) east of Fresno
      Avenue will be removed, the existing facility will be retained and no
      additional costs or proposed action associated with relinquishment is
      required.



 C.   Permits
      The Project will require the following permits as outlined in Table 7.1.

D.   Cooperative Agreements
     The Project Baseline Agreement, effective July 1, 2008, was made by and
     between the California Transportation Commission, Caltrans, and SJCOG.
     This agreement documents the inclusion of the SR-4 Crosstown Freeway
     Extension within the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund (TCIF) based on
     the project’s cost, schedule, scope, and benefits.

     A matching funding commitment for the TCIF Project, Resolution #R-08-
     39, was issued by SJCOG on June 26, 2008. This agreement resolved that
     SJCOG commits to pay for the $96,820,000 matching requirement for the
     TCIF Project, Western Extension of the Crosstown Freeway in accordance
     with the TCIF Baseline Agreement and Funding Plan for this project,
     including $93,820,000 in Measure K funds and $3,000,000 in Regional
     Transportation Impact Fee Funds.

     A Cooperative Agreement between Caltrans, SJCOG, and the City
     covering the PA&ED phase was executed in June 2008. A draft
     executable cooperative agreement for both right-of-way and design
     (PS&E) phases has been drafted by SJCOG and Caltrans; a copy is
     included in Attachment G. The Cooperative Agreement outlines the
     obligations and responsibilities of Caltrans and SJCOG. A Construction
     Cooperative Agreement will be drafted and executed between SJCOG and
     Caltrans prior to the construction of the project.

E.   Other Agreements
     New or revised maintenance agreements and/or freeway maintenance
     agreements will certainly be required between Caltrans, County of San
     Joaquin and City of Stockton due to the extension of SR-4 and its impacts
     to the existing County and City streets.

     Furthermore, new agreements, including a construction and maintenance
     (C&M) agreement, will be required between Caltrans and BNSF for the
     improvements within the railroad corridor. Although CCTC’s spur lines
     fall within BNSF’s corridor, a similar C&M agreement may be required
     between Caltrans and CCTC/Port of Stockton.

     Other agreements, such as freeway master agreements (utility companies)
     and City/County freeway agreements (previously discussed under Route
     Matters) may be required.

F.   Involvement with a Navigable Waterway
     There are no navigable waterways within the project limits.

G.   Transportation Management Plan for Use during Construction
     A request for a transportation management plan (TMP) and lane
     requirement charts was made to Caltrans District 10. An approved TMP
     checklist and lane closure charts were prepared by Caltrans Traffic
     Management in July 2009 and a copy is included in Attachment I.

Based on the lane closure charts for the segment of SR-4 between Fresno
Avenue and I-5, between Mondays through Thursdays, the project must
provide at least one through freeway lane open in each direction for a 24-
hour period. On Fridays, one through freeway lane must be maintained in
both directions from midnight to 3:00pm. On Sundays, one through
freeway lane must be maintained in both directions from 10:00pm to

     midnight. For complete closure of the facility, between Mondays through
     Thursdays, closures can occur between 11:00pm to 5:00am. On Fridays,
     Closures can occur between midnight to 5:00am. On Sundays, closures
     can occur between 11:00pm and midnight.

H.   Stage Construction
     Construction of the Project is anticipated to extend over a period of
     approximately three years, with construction over the BNSF railroad
     anticipated for approximately one year. To minimize disruption to the
     traveling public, the project is projected to be completed in three stages.

     Stage 1 will consist of construction of the new SR-4 roadway from Navy
     Drive to Fresno Avenue, including the elevated structure spanning BNSF.
     The improvements on Navy Drive and other local streets will also be
     performed during the first stage. Traffic on SR-4 and the on- and off-
     ramps to Fresno Avenue at this stage will remain operational. Shifting the
     roadway alignment and creating minor closures at local streets may occur
     as necessary during this stage; however, the detailed impacts will be
     assessed when detailed civil improvement plans are fully developed in the
     PS&E phase.

     Stage 2 will consist of construction of the inside lane, in both directions of
     SR-4, from the limits of Stage 1 to the conform point on the existing SR-4
     near the Garfield Street Overhead. This will provide one travel lane
     connecting the new roadway built during Stage 1 to existing SR-4, which
     will be used during the next stage of construction (Stage 3). Traffic will
     be managed similarly to Stage 1, with the exception of only one lane
     remaining open at the on- and off-ramps to Fresno Avenue to provide
     sufficient construction area; however, the ramps will remain operational
     for traffic accessing SR-4.

     Stage 3 will include the construction of the remaining portion of the new
     roadway, from the limits of Stage 2 to the conform point on existing SR-4.
     The existing on- and off-ramps to Fresno Avenue will also be removed at
     this stage. Traffic will be shifted to the new roadway built during Stage 1
     and Stage 2, and a minimum of one lane in each direction on SR-4 will be
     provided near the existing on- and off-ramps to Fresno Avenue. The
     proposed intersection of Navy Drive and the SR-4 on- and off-ramps will
     be open during this stage.

     Work along West Charter Way and Tillie Lewis, including the signalized
     intersection and re-striping improvements, can be conducted during any
     one of the stages. The staging and traffic handling can be conducted with
     temporary striping and/or channelizers since the improvements are
     primarily outside of the shoulder or minor restriping improvements.

                                                                      December 2009


     Access to adjacent businesses and neighborhoods will be maintained
     during construction; if access is limited or restricted, alternative routes
     with appropriate signage will be provided.

     Where a bridge structure is constructed, the primary staging and
     equipment storage areas are anticipated to occur within the structure
     footprint and the area between the two structures. The contractor may
     conservatively need an area beyond the outer edge of the structures of
     approximately 25-feet. Material and equipment will not be stored on
     railroad right-of-way or on City streets.

     Ingress and egress to the construction area will be conducted from existing
     Caltrans facilities, local surface streets, intersections, or acquired right-of-
     way, or a combination of each. Contractor vehicle parking is anticipated
     within the project right-of-way and temporary construction easements. At
     least two construction staging or lay-down areas, within acquired right-of-
     way on either side of the BNSF corridor, are anticipated.

     Most of the work will be done during daylight hours, with occasional
     night work to permit temporary closures for construction activities that
     could interfere with freeway or local traffic or create safety hazards. Any
     required traffic lane closures will be limited to non-peak travel periods.
     Some short-term closures of existing ramps may be necessary during the
     construction of the transitions between existing and new roadways, paving
     operations, and lane striping. Advance notice will be provided of ramp or
     roadway closures, and traffic will be detoured for these periods.

I.   Accommodations of Oversize Loads
     The proposed project enhances the connectivity between the Port and I-5,
     via SR-4. Since the extension of SR-4 will be elevated, the passage for
     vehicles of unrestricted height along the freeway will not be prohibited.

     The westbound and eastbound ramps accommodate oversize loads as well.
     Both ramps provide a 4% longitudinal cross slope, providing easier truck
     movements and improve both traffic operations and air-quality.

     As noted earlier, all project intersections, including SR-4/Navy Drive,
     Navy Drive/Tillie Lewis Drive, and Tillie Lewis Drive/West Charter Way,
     are designed for STAA-Long.

J.   Graffiti Control
     Graffiti removal efforts will be based upon practices specified in the
     Caltrans Maintenance Manual.

89.     This agreement is not intended to create a third party beneficiary or define duties, obligations,
        or rights in parties not signatory to this agreement. This agreement is not intended to affect the
        legal liability of PARTNERS by imposing any standard of care for completing WORK
        different from the standards imposed by law.

90.     PARTNERS will not assign or attempt to assign agreement obligations to parties not signatory
        to this agreement.

91.     Any ambiguity contained in this agreement will not be interpreted against PARTNERS.
        PARTNERS waive the provisions of California Civil Code section 1654.

92.     A waiver of a partner’s performance under this agreement will not constitute a continuous
        waiver of any other provision. An amendment made to any article or section of this agreement
        does not constitute an amendment to or negate all other articles or sections of this agreement.

93.     A delay or omission to exercise a right or power due to a default does not negate the use of that
        right or power in the future when deemed necessary.

94.     If any partner defaults in their agreement obligations, the non-defaulting partner(s) will request
        in writing that the default be remedied within 30 calendar days. If the defaulting partner fails
        to do so, the non-defaulting partner(s) may initiate dispute resolution.

95.     PARTNERS will first attempt to resolve agreement disputes at the PROJECT team level. If
        they cannot resolve the dispute themselves, the CALTRANS district director and the executive
        officer of SJCOG will attempt to negotiate a resolution. If no resolution is reached,
        PARTNERS’ legal counsel will initiate mediation. PARTNERS agree to participate in
        mediation in good faith and will share equally in its costs.

        Neither the dispute nor the mediation process relieves PARTNERS from full and timely
        performance of WORK in accordance with the terms of this agreement. However, if any
        partner stops WORK, the other partner(s) may seek equitable relief to ensure that WORK
        continues.

        Except for equitable relief, no partner may file a civil complaint until after mediation, or 45
        calendar days after filing the written mediation request, whichever occurs first.

        Any civil complaints will be filed in the Superior Court of the county in which the
        CALTRANS district office signatory to this agreement resides. The prevailing partner will be
