The proposed channel stabilization construction would consist of a concrete channel (bottom and side slopes) with a bottom width of 28 feet and a trickle channel (4-foot wide and 1-foot deep) running along the stream centerline designed to pool water during low flow periods. Additionally, baffling blocks would be constructed on the downstream end to promote oxygenation of the river during normal flows. Side slopes would vary above the OHWM. This effort is intended to stabilize the area beneath and around the bridges and prevent future undercutting. The northern portion of the project area has been previously deed restricted as a Corps mitigation area for permit SWT-2009-624. Approximately 0.44 ac of this site occurs within the project area. The applicant is proposing additional offsetting mitigation in order to use the restricted site.
