The overall objective is to provide unrestricted fish passage for all life stages of fish for the purpose of spawning, rearing or migration which will support increased fish sustainability, survival and production. The existing culvert installation was restricting access to identified fish habitat upstream and was replaced with an open bottomed fish friendly structure (13.0m pre-cast concrete bridge). The bridge will remove the identified fish passage barrier created by the culvert and will ensure unrestricted fish passage is provided for all life stages of fish in the reconstructed stream channel. The project is not located within a community watershed. Fish species: Dolly Varden, Cutthroat trout and Bull trout.
