Project: Tributary to Boulder Creek Culvert Replacement

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: none
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: EA # OR 103-08-09  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 3/15/2011
Summary: During the winter of 2009, high streamflow in the unnamed tributary to Boulder Creek coupled with structural fatigue overwhelmed the existing culvert, resulting in the separation of two sections. Fill beneath the lower section of the culvert was washed out, causing the culvert section and road fill above it to collapse into the stream. Since the initial failure, continued sloughing has reduced the running surface of the road to approximately half its original width. This poses a safety risk and threatens to close the road to vehicular traffic. The active erosion is also contributing sediment to the stream channel below the road.
