Document Description
The project is designed to improve safety, and improve steelhead passage within a spawning and rearing area, critical to the steelhead population downstream of Bradbury Dam. Crossing 7 is a concrete Arizona type structure with a completely buried culvert underneath. Crossing 8 contains a temporary steel and wood bridge, with an abandoned Arizona crossing under the bridge, constricting flows, and causing high velocities which cannot be navigated by the steelhead during high flows. Both crossings are being replaced with a bottomless arched culvert which can withstand a 100 year storm and will convey the 50 year flood. Crossing 7 requires two rock weirs, buried to a depth of 5 feet. The footprint will be approximately 2,500 sq. ft. and about 300 cubic yards of material will be displaced. No grade structure is required for crossing 8, but 2,000 sq. ft. and 250 cubic yards of material will be displaced. Both Arizona crossings will be removed, along with the existing bridge, and all areas of disturbance will be replanted. This project is in cooperation with the Santa Ynez River Technical Advisory Committee and supported by the Department's fishery restoration grants program.
