Construction of approximately 1,900 linear feet of gravel trail; 4. Installation of 2 free-span bridges having approximately 100 linear feet of total length, including abutments and armoring; 5. Installation of up to seven "float-aside" seasonal water crossings or upland channel crossings, including abutments and armoring; 6. Installation of armored dip crossings along with two temporary seasonal wet crossings for construction purposes and three in-channel "Rosgen-venin" hydraulic features; 7. Installation of armored concrete dip and armored box culverts across overflow channel. 8. Installation of concrete, handicapped-accessible picnic tables and trash receptacles; 9. Creation of approximately 700-foot drainage swale that provides vegetative filtration of storm water; 10. Restoration of approximately 1 acre of floodplain by re-contouring flood constrictions, planting approximately 600 native plants and trees, and implementing erosion control measures; and 11. Development and installation of a bond acknowledgement sign, a trail and site identification map/sign, a chain-link fence along west side of Young property, and trailside interpretive signs and a trailhead drinking fountain.
