Instream works at the Palmerston Creek Bridge crossing began on September 12, 2007 and were completed on September 25, 2007. The work was carried out as per the prescription developed for the site with the exception of a few modifications. Due to the presence of pink salmon in the Eve watershed the lowering of the bed elevation could not be completed. Activities included constructing a 120 m long armoured berm downstream of the bridge, scalping the gravel bars upstream and downstream to present water level, and creating a new channel beneath the eastern half of the bridge.
