The group started with introductions. <br /> <br />2. The group discussed a time and day of the week for future meetings. Josh Susman indicated that <br />weekdays after 4:30 PM work best for him and Carolyn Dee. As Mondays do not work for the <br />TRWC, Planning Commission meetings are held on Wednesdays, and Town Council meetings <br />are held on Thursdays, it was decided that Tuesdays work best. <br /> <br />3. Dan Wilkins discussed the project background. <br />? <br /> The Federal Government earmarked $2.82 million of Federal Surface Transportation Funds <br />towards the replacement of the SR 89 Mousehole. <br />? <br /> Nevada County Transportation Commission has earmarked an additional $500,000 towards <br />this project. <br />? <br /> Caltrans has held 2 public open houses. <br />? <br /> Caltrans has prepared several technical studies and surveys. <br />? <br /> Caltrans has taken on lead agency status. <br /> <br />4. Dan Wilkins discussed how the project alternatives propose to create new roadway facilities by <br />either constructing a new bridge (either on the existing railroad alignment or along a new <br />alignment) or constructing tunnels under the existing railroad. In addition, there have been some <br />changes to cost estimates and the feasibility of the tunnel alternative which have complicated the <br />alternative selection process. <br /> <br />5. Dan Wilkins discussed some of the project challenges: <br />? <br /> The need to maintain both highway and railroad traffic makes project difficult. <br />? <br /> There are two options for dealing with train traffic if a new railroad bridge is constructed: Build <br />a bridge on a new railroad alignment or build a temporary railroad shoofly. <br />? <br /> The alternatives provide little opportunity for phasing, with the exception of the tunnel <br />alternative. <br />______________________________________________________________________________ <br />Town of Truckee <br />October 15, 2007 Mousehole Stakeholder Committee Meeting Minutes <br />Page 1 <br /> <br />
