We are very excited to announce that our team was awarded the Willits Bypass Mitigation Monitoring Contract. The contract was estimated at $10-17 Million for five years and includes a range of data collection. TransTerra staff will be able to partner up with both old colleagues and new faces from a diverse group of highly skilled consultants to assist the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District, Caltrans North Region and ICF in monitoring efforts. The Mitigation Bank was constructed by Hanford and though the Willts Bypass project was quite controversial the mitigation bank has so many excited features. Check out the MCRCD Willits Bypass Mitigation page, full of updates, species observations and opportunities to contribute.
