CALTRANS SEEKS PUBLIC’S INPUT ON STATEWIDE FREIGHT MOBILITY PLAN

SAN LUIS OBISPO – With the economic recovery expanding, California’s highways, seaports, and railroads are again teeming with freight being transported across the state and on to the rest of the nation. Caltrans has invested billions of dollars in projects aimed at improving freight movement and reducing its environmental impacts, and this summer it will ask the public to weigh-in on the future of freight movement in California.

Caltrans will host a public workshop on Monday, June 23 from 4 pm to 7 pm at the Marina Public Library at 190 Seaside Circle to solicit input on the draft California Freight Mobility Plan (CFMP), which lays out a vision for all the ways freight is moved, including seaports, air cargo, railroads, and trucking. While promoting economic competitiveness, the plan will also benefit the environment and promote public health by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants.

“To maintain and improve California’s status as the eighth-largest economy in the world, we must create a multimodal freight plan that sustains freight jobs, improves transportation, protects the environment and our communities,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The U.S. Department of Transportation will rely on the CFMP and other state freight plans as it shapes a national freight plan. Projects identified in California’s plan will be eligible to apply for a higher percentage of federal funding.

This plan is especially important because California is a national and global trade leader. Of the country’s internationally traded consumer products, about 40 percent is transported through California’s seaports. With 12 seaports, California has an unparalleled geographic trade position on the Pacific Rim.

California has set aggressive goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve a sustainable environment. The freight plan’s goal is to transition the freight industry to zero or near zero emissions by 2050. California has already made progress in reducing freight’s effects through better engines, cleaner fuels, infrastructure changes, and improved operations.

Caltrans has accomplished much to improve freight in California over the last few years. Some of the more notable freight projects include:

  • Otay Mesa East Port of Entry: This project is an innovative, tolled land port of entry designed to significantly reduce border wait times and expedite the flow of goods between California and Mexico. Caltrans broke ground on the project last year.
  • Cordelia Truck Scales: In July 2013, a new $100 million truck complex opened along eastbound Interstate 80 near Fairfield in Solano County. The state-of-the-art facility fast-tracks inspections for more than two million trucks annually that travel from the Port of Oakland on I-80 through Northern California.
  • Gerald Desmond Bridge: At 515 feet tall, the new Gerald Desmond Bridge when completed will be tall enough to allow the world’s largest ships to pass under and enter the Port of Long Beach’s inner harbor, increasing the Port’s capacity to handle more cargo. Currently, about 15 percent of the nation’s international containerized trade is moved by trucks across the existing bridge. The new bridge will have three lanes in each direction, allowing a more efficient flow of goods and people.
  • Colton Crossing: This rail project was completed last year, $109 million under budget and eight months ahead of schedule. Most trains entering or leaving Southern California used the at-grade rail-to-rail crossing, which resulted in significant congestion on commuter and freight rail lines. A new elevated overpass has removed that chokepoint. The project will deliver an estimated $241 million in travel time savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 34,000 tons annually.

Caltrans is developing the CFMP in partnership with the California State Transportation Agency, the freight industry, public agencies, Native American tribal governments, and advocacy groups. The plan will be finalized by the end of this year.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW CALTRANS HIGHWAY BILLBOARD SAFETY CAMPAIGN FEATURES CALTRANS CHILDREN

CENTRAL COAST – A new Caltrans Highway Safety campaign, as part of the ‘Slow for the Cone Zone’ campaign, featuring the children of Caltrans’ very own field maintenance employees and highlighting a message to “Be Alert, My Mom/Dad’s at Work” is underway, Caltrans officials have announced.

“I am very excited for these new billboards because they convey a very clear message that we all have families and want to return home safely to them at the end of our work day, says District 5 Director Tim Gubbins.

A casting call to Caltrans’ field maintenance employees was issued statewide last month. All of the kids who attended the photo shoot were used for the billboard campaign, children of five different Caltrans field maintenance families.

There are approximately 77 billboards statewide, two on the central coast. One is located between Paso Robles and San Miguel on U.S. Hwy. 101 in San Luis Obispo County. The other is located south of Salinas on U.S. Hwy. 101 in Monterey County.

Since 1924, 183 Caltrans employees have been killed on the job, including eight in District 5. One of the biggest hazards for workers is motorists who do not exercise caution while driving through highway work zones. Caltrans reminds everyone to ‘Slow for the Cone Zone’.

First California Condor Observed in San Mateo County Since 1904

Condor #597, also known as “Lupine” took a trip from Pinnacles National Park on May 30, 2014 and returned just two days later. In the process, she discovered new territory. Similar to the pioneers, Condor #597 explored the landscape and expanded the current range of her kind. Fortunately, this recent excursion was recorded by a motion-activated camera on private property near the town of Pescadero, in San Mateo County, just 35 miles away from San Francisco and 6 miles from Ano Nuevo State Park, where up to 10,000 elephant seals come to breed and give birth. The property owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent the photo to Ventana Wildlife Society on June 10 after discovering it on his camera.

The last verified sighting of the California condor in San Mateo County was in 1904 near Stanford University.
Excerpt from The Condor, 1904, Vol VI, pg 50.:
California Vulture in San Mateo Co., California. -One afternoon about the middle of January (1904) Prof. Harold Heath of Stanford University saw a California vulture (Gymnogyps californianus) a short distance west of the university, near a place locally known as the ‘Basaltic Columns.’ What was probably the same individual was again seen a week later by Mr. Ernest Dudley, about a mile from the first station–WALTER K. FISHER, Palo Alto, Cal.

Marine mammals, such as California Sea Lions, are an important food source for condors. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, sea lions were often shot to protect dwindling salmon fisheries, and other marine mammals were persecuted for blubber to fuel oil lamps and for other purposes. Diminishing populations of marine mammals, a food source for scavenging condors, coincided with the range retraction of condors to the south and inland where the birds could survive primarily on terrestrial mammals such as livestock, deer, pigs, and ground squirrels. By the 1980’s, there were only 22 condors remaining in the wild in southern California. Sea Lions and other marine mammals have been protected for decades, and their numbers are rebounding rapidly, which may mean that this area could support breeding pairs of condors. Through successful captive breeding at San Diego Zoo Global, Los Angeles Zoo, World Center for Birds of Prey, and the Oregon Zoo, condor numbers have increased substantially. In central California, the Ventana Wildlife Society and Pinnacles National Park co-manage the recovery effort and collaborate with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Release programs, such as the collaborative effort in central California, enable the birds to be released to the wild and eventually recover.

“Not only is this the first sighting of a condor in San Mateo County in 110 years, but it is an exciting new range expansion into an area that could support condors in the wild”, said Kelly Sorenson, Ventana Wildlife Society’s executive director. This condor almost certainly traveled through Santa Cruz County given the local topography and typical flying conditions in the area. “The coast is really important for condors today because of the abundance of marine mammal carcasses for them to eat, and it will be interesting to see if additional visits by condors to San Mateo or Santa Cruz County occur in the future.” Karen Bepler-Dorn, Superintendent of Pinnacles National Park said, “It is exciting to find that the condor is expanding its’ range, and equally rewarding that it was our local community helping to make the discovery."
Condor #597 was released in Big Sur, California by the Ventana Wildlife Society in spring of 2013 and was hatched on April 5, 2011. Recently, “Lupine” has been spending a great deal of her time at Pinnacles National Park. There are over 60 condors in the wild in central California with three or four breeding pairs. Statewide there are over 130 condors free-flying in the wild.

Recovery of the California condor is still tenuous due to ongoing lead poisoning, primarily from spent lead ammunition. Through nonlead ammunition giveaways, ongoing outreach and new regulations banning lead ammunition, condor deaths are expected to decrease over time. Condors are also affected by DDT-induced eggshell thinning. DDT exposure can come from marine sources but this pesticide was banned in the 1970’s and has decreased substantially in recent decades. Where once bald eagles, peregrine falcons and brown pelicans experienced low egg hatching success due to thinning, these species have all recovered in the wild. “While there is much to do to ensure the long term safety of condors in the wild, it is clearly possible and we’re on the right track”, said Sorenson.
Note: Condor sightings can be reported by sending an email to CondorSightings@VentanaWS.org
Be sure to include date, time, condor numbers, photo if one exists, and any other details about the sighting.

HML: Big Sur Sound and Story, kicks off Sunday June 15th

From Henry Miller Memorial Library

Henry Miller Memorial Library’s new outdoor audio listening series,
Big Sur Sound and Story, kicks off Sunday June 15th, runs through August

Programming will include selections from the most innovative audio producers in the English-speaking world, including Kitchen Sisters, The Truth, and the Moth.

May 29, 2014: The Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur is proud announce its new summer program: Big Sur Sound and Story, a unique outdoor audio listening series. http://bigsursoundandstory.wordpress.com/

Beginning June 15th and for every Sunday until September 2014 (except July 13th) the Library will "turn off the lights and turn on the sound.” Visitors will lay out on our lawn beneath a canopy of towering redwood trees, under the stars, steps from the Pacific Ocean, and quietly listen to carefully-selected audio stories played through our world-class sound system.

Installments will be curated by the most innovative purveyors of audio in the English-speaking world, including The Truth, The Kitchen Sisters, Radiotopia, The Moth, Unfictional, and more!

Each installment will be held at the Henry Miller Memorial Library, 48603 Highway 1, in Big Sur; ¼ mile south of Nepenthe restaurant and 25 miles south of Carmel. Admission is free, although donations are greatly appreciated. Doors open at 8 and the audio begins at sunset. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets to lay on the grass and jackets; it can get cold even in the summer months.
Live outdoor audio listening in the heart of Big Sur

"The idea had been kicking around for a while," said Magnus Toren, the Executive Director of the Henry Miller Library and Big Sur Sound and Story. "It’s kind of a golden age for audio and we at the Library are blessed with the world’s greatest location. It just seemed like the right time. So across the past winter we reached out to many of these producers, and every single one agreed. Not only that, most of them will be traveling to Big Sur to speak about their selections in-person."

Toren reminds readers that Big Sur Sound and Story is not in-person "story-telling." “There will not be a performer reciting stories on stage with a microphone. Instead, the story will speak for itself. We’ll simply play the audio file through our sound system and let listeners close their eyes and create their own visuals."

As for the stories themselves? Toren says to expect the unexpected. “Each curator has a carte blanche as to what they’ll submit. Anything goes, really. We’re expecting everything from human-interest stories to documentaries, to performance pieces. We’ll happily defer to their wisdom and expertise. No matter what, we’re sure the stories will resonate with listeners.”

At the end of the summer season, the Big Sur Sound and Story jury, which consists of, among others, Bob Edwards, of NPR, will select the "best of the best." These selections will be played at the series’ "Gala Finale" event, whose date is TBD (likely first week of September.)

Magnus Toren is available for interviews; to reach him, please contact Mike Scutari at mike@henrymiller.org or 831-667-2574.
