Document Description
On January 30, 2010, a drainage system experienced significant damage washing out the embankment above South Fork Eel River, separation of the down-drain and damage to the cross culvert that conveys flow under State Routes 101 and 271. Seasonal rains and saturated soils resulted in a slope failure, separation of the down-drain, separation of an over-side drain, significant damage below the roadway and further erosion to the culvert invert. The damaged culvert and down-drain accept roadway runoff from two over-side drains and a small unnamed creek. Work at the location includes, immediate placement of a temporary bypass down-drain, repairing the washout, replacing the damaged down-drain, lining of the existing cross culvert, repairing the over-side drain, placing RSP and providing traffic control.
