The plans for the restoration of Bouquet Canyon Creek are being developed through a rigorous environmental review process. In August Public Works released an environmental documents referred to as an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration. The comments received from resource and regulatory agencies, including the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the United States Forest Service were substantial. We are currently discussing these comments with these and other important partner agencies and stakeholders to develop plans that will both restore the creek and provide for a fully functional road for motorists and other users. As a safety precaution, a 3.4-mile stretch of Bouquet Canyon Road was closed on October 27 and will remain closed to traffic at least through April 15, 2017-the end of storm season.
