Document Description
The proposed project would replace failing culverts at Class II and Class III stream crossings with bridges, remove accumulated sediments and road fill prisms from stream crossings, construct armored fords at Class II and Class III stream crossings, partially restore historic topography and native vegetation on former logging roads (road decommissioning), and convert roads to trails. The project will also delineate parking areas, a boat launch ramp, and driving surfaces within the existing west-end entry area to the Big River unit, accessed from State Highway 1, and construct a vault-type restroom building in the entry area outside the 100-year floodplain. Standard parks signs and a Proposition 40 acknowledgement sign will also be installed as part of the this project.
