Document Description
The proposed Project will place filter fabric against the highway side of the rock (already in place due to completed emergency work) and up to eroded bank. This will act to both prevent erosion loss of soil along the bank, but also to isolate the fill area from the rock and prevent harm to aquatic animals, should any be within the voids between the five to six ton rocks. A quarter ton rock backfill will be placed on the fabric at a 2:1 slope to provide a base for restoring the embankment and soil placed above the rock to the height of the existing bank. The bank will be contoured at the upstream and downstream ends of the Project. A small amount of cut into the existing bank may be needed to make the transition as smooth as possible. Although no trees will be removed by the project, there will be plantings for bank stabilization.
