This is an Environmental Assessment EA that discusses the primary environmental issues involved with upgrading Redman Road at the Naval Security Group Activity Sabana Seca and its use as an alternative route for traveling to the Circularly Disposed Antenna Array CDAA. The EA has been prepared in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, and Naval Operations Instruction 6O9O.1B. Its content is also consistent with the Puerto Rico Public Policy Environmental Act. The proposed action involves upgrading the existing Redman Road so that dependable year round access and an uncongested emergency vehicle route are available between the South Tract and the CDAA. Upgrading of the road would involve grading and paving approximately 1.5 miles of existing road in the South Tract thereby raising the roads elevation approximately 8 inches. The North Tract portion of Redman Road 3.0 miles would be raised an average of 2 feet in height, graded and paved, and would required that an additional 4 to 20 feet on one side of the existing road be cleared and permanently maintained as the road shoulder. A 10 foot by 30 foot turnout area would be constructed every one quarter mile to allow vehicles to pass on the single lane road.
