NAME OF APPLICANT: City of Baton Rouge, Parish of Baton Rouge, c/o Thompson Engineering, 14635 S. Harrell’s Ferry Road, Suite 4-A, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70816.

LOCATION OF WORK: MacHost Road between its intersection on the north with Port Hudson-Pride Road and on the south with Main St./LA 64 (30.665900, -91.124400), in Zachary Louisiana,  in East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in the Amite River hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or rip - rap/aggregate material to reconstruct and maintain MacHost road and its drainage features. The 2.16-mile road will be widened from an 18-ft wide two-lane roadway to a 38-ft with 8-ft shoulders and a bicycle pedestrian path.  Approximately nineteen pipe culverts and one box culvert will be installed under the new widened roadway to maintain and enhance existing drainage features and waterways. Culvert  piping will also be placed in the new drainage swales to be constructed on both sides of the road at the access for existing homes and businesses. Three of the existing waterways culverted under the road will be armored with rip-rap before and after the crossing under the road for erosion protection. Approximately 0.08 acre of jurisdictional “Other Waters of the U.S.”  (OTWOTUS) will be temporarily impacted by the project and approximately 2.10 acres of forested jurisdictional wetlands will be permanently impacted by the project. Approximately 3,772 cubic yards of native material would be excavated from the site with some being redeposited some being hauled off to a non-wetland disposal site. Approximately 2,900 cubic yards of  structural fill and rip-rap material will be deposited to complete the project. 

A Preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact 2.10 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands. 

MITIGATION: The applicant states that the proposed project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse impacts to the maximum extent practicable. As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.
