The proposed construction would involve the removal of an existing sidewalk, wooden light poles, a gravel parking lot, and concrete blocks currently lining the stream channel. A 30 inch reinforced concrete pipe headwall would also be installed. A new sidewalk with drainage structures to carry roadside and surface runoff to the stream channel would be added. A pedestrian bridge will be placed across the stream channel with no fill placed into the stream. Meanders would be added to the stream with a natural substrate lining replacing the current straight concrete lined channel.
