Location:  The proposed project Job Piece 33602(04) is on EW 300 Road in Sections 1, 2, and 12, Township 24 North, Range 15 East and Sections 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 15, and 16, Township 24 North, Range 16 East, causeway crossing Oologah Lake, Rogers County, Oklahoma.  The project site can be found on the Winganon, Oklahoma 7.5 Minute USGS Quadrangle map at North Latitude 36.565541 and West Longitude 95.600004. 

Project Description:  The application is for the placement of fill material (riprap) into Oologah Lake for bank stabilization and infrastructure protection to reconstruct the west causeway and EW-300.

Description of Work:  The applicant proposes to place fill material using 24-inch riprap in order to widen the existing road causeway and embankments (3:1 slope) for the installation of two 12-ft. wide paved asphalt lanes with paved shoulders ranging in width from 2-ft. to 5.5-ft, and parking area for recreation.  No new or temporary right-of-way is needed, but ground disturbance outside of the existing pavement is expected and includes some shoulder widening, guardrail replacement, and widening on the causeway.  The causeway would remain open during construction, with a temporary offset alignment shoofly and/or phased construction will be implemented.  The total linear feet of right-of-way to be impacted is approximately 3,029 linear feet on each side of the causeway.  The excavation (60,925 cys) starts at 638.00 a toe trench using the one-step removal method to support the fill placement.  The riprap (79,065 cys) and 9-inch filter blanket would be installed from 638.00 to 671.00 NAD83.

The replacement of a 48-inch structurally deficient pipe at STA. 148+00 would be verified under Nationwide Permit 14 for Linear Transportation.  The existing reinforced concrete boxes and reinforced concrete pipes would remain in place for the roadway improvement project for 116+00 to 316+00.

The work would be performed using conventional earthmoving equipment for excavator, wheeled dump trucks and track equipment.
