Description    


Replaced two culverts with one 84 inch by 80 foot long culvert at streambed elevation with one single post trash rack. Replaced one culvert with armored fill wet crossing. 1,858 feet of road outsloped, inboard ditch removed. Rolling dips installed.

Project Benefit    


The project will lead to a reduction in chronic sediment delivery that degrades spawing gravel quality and causes high and frequent turbidity associated with road surface erosion. The project will also lead to a reduction in coarse sediment delivery that causes a loss of rearing habitat through pool filling and channel aggradation by reducing the risk of catastrophic stream corssing failures, stream diversions, and road-related fill failures.
