Footbridge Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Replace existing footbridge across Little River Creek at the Upper Meadows Campground in Van Damme State Park to protect sewer line crossing from stream debris impacts. Reset existing sewer line to daylight further up north embankment and adapt to a new bridge height. Remove spoils from excavation of sewer line and new abutments away from stream and use elsewhere within the park. Repair trail approaches and revegetate as necessary to protect against erosion and invasive species. Replacement bridge will be raised to a height that will pass a 50-year storm with 18" of clearance. Bridge will be placed at the same location, but will be 3-4 feet longer to accommodate approach ramps built to ADA standards. Work will be done in the dry season and no equipment will be driven through or into the stream; approved BMP containment methods will be used to contain soil and keep all debris or other contamination out of the stream channel. The project will protect public health and safety, improve accessibility, and support continued use and maintenance.
