Resighini Rancheria Roadway Improvement and Flood Mitigation Engineering and CEQA / NEPA Compliance

LACO completed the design for a low-cost road-improvement plan for the Resighini Rancheria that satisfies multiple regulatory, environmental, and community concerns in Del Norte County, CA.

Our project team designed the plans for the 1.125 miles of roadway leading to the existing tribal offices and casino to protect and restore crucial anadromous habitat. Other essential project goals included:

  • Access for public and tribal members during local flooding on Waukel and Junior Creeks
  • Fisheries enhancement
  • Wetland stream restoration
  • Provide for adequate drainage
  • Roadway designed to Federal/BIA Standards
  • CEQA/NEPA compliance
  • 5-month schedule reduction after project award to meet agency concerns at no additional cost to client
  • Respect cultural materials
  • Minimize project costs

Our priorities included working closely with Resighini personnel and maintaining open dialogue and discussion, so that we met the design of all interested parties. As a result, we met the concerns of the following agencies for this project:

  • Tribal Council and Environmental Protection Authority
  • Yurok Tribe Environmental Program
  • County of Del Norte
  • United States Army Corps of Engineers
  • California Department of Fish & Game
  • California Coastal Commission
  • National Marine Fisheries Service
  • United States Fish and Wildlife Service
