San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor Agency
California Corridor Constructors
Chambers Group, Inc.
An innovative, interagency process was used to create this comprehensive, multi-habitat restoration project for mitigating natural resource impacts from the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor. The project established a single mitigation area consisting of 102.4 hectares (256 acres) of coastal sage scrub, riparian woodland, and saltwater marsh. This cooperative process led to very effective and efficient integration of environmental concerns in project planning and development. This mitigation project has made possible a highway improvement project that protects the natural ecosystem of the area while providing an important economic link in the regional transportation network.
