Document Description
The District has identified two creek crossing locations (Sites 1 and 2) along the Stevens Creek Nature Trail alignment in need of retrofitting. Site #1 is the location of an existing 24 ft long wooden beam bridge on an unnamed tributary to Stevens Creek. Stevens Creek Nature Trail in this area is multi-use, but can be closed to cyclists and equestrians. Channel incision and bank erosion underneath the bridge threaten its integrity, making it vulnerable to damage and/or failure during large storm events. Site #2 is an existing at-grade wet ford across the mainstem of Stevens Creek, upstream of the general vicinity of Site #1. Stevens Creek Natural Trail in this location is currently open only to pedestrians. The proposed project includes bridge construction activities at Sites 1 and 2. Work at Site #1 would replace the existing 24 ft long wooden beam bridge across Tributary Creek with a new 45- to 50-ft long steel bridge that is farther from the actively eroding creek banks. Work at site #2 would replace an existing at-grade wet ford crossing of the Stevens Creek mainstem with a new 45- to 50-ft long steel bridge to improve safety and avoid sensitive creek and riparian habitats.
