NAME OF APPLICANT:  Ascension Parish Government, c/o ELOS Environmental, LLC, Attn: Brittany Berthelot and Flynn Daigle, 43117 E. Pleasant, Ridge Road, Hammond, Louisiana 70403.

 LOCATION OF WORK:  Starting on Roddy Road and its intersection with LA 621, approximately 2.7 miles north of Gonzales, Louisiana, proceeding south approximately 2.8 miles ending just past the intersection of Roddy Road and Weber City Road, in Prairieville, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings. 

 CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate, and place fill and aggregate material to facilitate the widening and resurfacing of approximately 2.8 miles of Roddy Road to include drainage improvements and the replacement of three bridges.  The existing roadway is approximately 20' wide and will be expanded to approximately 32' wide. The proposed project is situated in an approximately 39-acre area that has been determined to contain approximately 1.02 acres of forested wetlands and 0.73 acre of other waters of the U.S.  

       A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact approximately 0.72 acre of forested wetlands and 0.61 acre of other waters of the U.S.  Approximately 0.3 acre of forested wetlands and approximately 0.12 acre of other waters of the U.S. on site have been avoided and will not be impacted.  It is anticipated that the proposed project would have no impact on adjacent wetlands.

      The applicant stated that the proposed project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  Any further onsite reduction would limit usage of the property deeming the project impracticable.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to mitigate in-kind wetland credits from a Corps approved mitigation bank located in the watershed.
