Upper Butler Creek Trail Bridge Replacement

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Replace the deteriorating 22 foot bridge across the upper drainage of Butler Creek on the West Bridge Trail at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park with a 26 foot truss bridge. Excavations approximately three feet deep and six feet in length on both sides of the creek will be required for installation, but work will be generally confined to the existing trail corridor. Silt fencing and a tarp placed under the bridge will prevent sediment and debris from entering the stream channel. The new structure will be pre-manufactured offsite then assembled on location without heavy power tools. All work will occur outside marbled murrelet and northern spotted owl breeding seasons.
