Fort Ord Transportation Network Elements and State Route 68 Improvements EIR/EA and Wetland Mitigation Monitoring, Fort Ord Reuse Authority and City of Monterey

EMC Planning Group prepared this environmental document for the Fort Ord Reuse Authority and the City of Monterey. Planned improvements included York Road, Upper Ragsdale Drive, and Ryan Ranch connections to South Boundary Road, and State Route 68 Improvements from State Route 218 to York Road. The improvements planned for State Route 68 are located within the City of Monterey. A small portion of the intersection of State Route 68 and State Route 218 are within the City of Del Rey Oaks. The proposed connector roads are located within the former Fort Ord, and were annexed by the City of Monterey. A portion of the Ryan Ranch Road connection is also within the City of Del Rey Oaks.

The environmental analysis focused on aesthetics (SR 68 is a State Scenic Route), sensitive biological resources including wetlands, cultural resources, and changes in traffic patterns. The analysis was conducted under contract to Sandis, Humber, Jones, the prime contractor.

As a follow up contract with the City of Monterey, EMC Planning Group is conducting quarterly monitoring of wetlands mitigation implemented by the City of Monterey during project implementation.
