Abstract

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) proposes to realign State Route 542 away from the North Fork Nooksack River in order to reduce environmental impacts from repetitive roadway maintenance, and to improve fish passage at Chain-up Creek. Work includes: realigning approximately 1,600 linear feet of roadway up to 80 feet away from the North Fork Nooksack River, replacing a 5-foot diameter, 80-foot long culvert with a 30-foot long, 40-foot wide bridge over Chain-up Creek, and installing 5 porous weirs and 2 anchored large woody debris structures in the restored stream channel.
