Document Description
The project is limited to the replacement of a 40-foot corrugated metal pipe and concrete headwalls, recontouring and armoring the bank slope, and repair of the overlying access road. Authorized activities include excavation of the existing culvert, headwalls, and area around the culvert; silt, sand, or sediment removal; installation of the new box culvert, installation of rock bedding, riprap, and backfill material around the culvert; re-shaping banks around the culvert inlet and outlet; repair of the overlying service road including construction of block wall with guardrails; removal of select trees and understory vegetation; and revegetation and re-stabilization. Project activities will be performed when there is no flowing, ponded, or saturated water present. While project activities will occur when the tributary is dry, residual pools of standing water downstream of the culvert may need to be dewatered prior to construction using gravity flow or sump pumps.
