Regulatory Public Notices

Collapse All Expand All

Under the Corps' Regulatory Program, a public notice is the primary method for advising all interested parties of a proposed activity for which a permit is sought. Public notices are also published to inform the public about new or proposed regulations, policies, guidance or permit procedures.

We are requesting public comments on many Public Notices (PNs) concurrently; please pay careful attention to the file number and the comments Due Date.

Email comments are preferred.  To submit comments in writing, send them to the attention of the Project Manager listed in the Public Notice title block.  All comments should reference the PN file number and be submitted by the Response Required Date on the PN.

The Public Notices are in pdf format. To read the files you may need to download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader or another comparable program

The City of Hercules has applied to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, San Francisco District, for a Department of the Army Permit for the Hercules Intermodal Transit Center (ITC) along the Capitol Corridor line on the UPRR corridor in the City of Hercules, adjacent to San Pablo Bay. The project will include track realignment; platform and station construction; and construction of new roads to the site including extensions of John Muir Parkway and Bayfront Boulevard, and Transit Loop Drive. The John Muir Parkway/Bayfront Boulevard improvements will require the construction of two new bridges over Refugio Creek (Bayfront Bridge and Transit Loop Bridge) and the replacement of the existing railroad bridge over Refugio Creek. Other improvements include the construction of retaining walls and railing to provide grade separation of the tracks from the Hercules Bayfront development area, the completion of the East Bay Regional Parks District trail (Bay Trail) along the waterfront area, Creekside Trail, and the realignment and restoration of Refugio Creek.
