This project replaces a barrier to fish passage at 3km on the 88 Road in the Vanderhoof Forest District. The pre-existing crossing was a 1000mm CMP with a 2 m fill on a Rainbow Trout streat with high habitat value. The structure was replaced with a 3050x1600x13m arch on steel footings with proper armoring and sediment control measures over the area affecting the stream. The project is not located in a community watershed.
