If trucks are used to transport sand, a typical scenario may include the following: Trucks would
haul material from the sand source site (debris basin, construction site, etc.) along a designated
route to the placement sites as shown in an example traffic route plan on Figure 4-7 and
Figure 4-8. Temporary construction access routes may have to be created on the beach to enable
trucks to move onto the beach without becoming stuck in the sand. Sand will be redistributed
along the beach using earthmoving equipment such as bulldozers and scrapers. Trucks will
generate added traffic and noise along the haul route, and may cause residents a temporary
inconvenience during sand delivery.  Noise levels may be temporarily increased during
construction from heavy equipment hauling and spreading material. All operations will follow
local noise ordinances and hours of operation are specified in the ordinances.
The beach fill sites at Oil Piers and Hueneme Beach are located adjacent to the railroad tracks,
adding this optional transportation mode. The Hueneme Beach fill site is ideally situated for this
type of operation as a rail line runs directly into Port Hueneme. Material can reach these sites by
train and can be sidecar-dumped directly onto the beach or conveyed from the railcar by a belt
system, where scrapers and/or loaders could transport the material to the placement site and
create the design beach template. The estimated sand quantity that can be delivered over time
and the number of required train trips is shown in Table 4.4. This table provides an estimate and
is subject to approval by the Union Pacific Railroad.
