Section 7. Abstract


Squaw Creek Road was built by the Bureau of Public Roads on Powell Ranger District, Clearwater National Forest in the 1950's. An impassable culvert was placed at its crossing of West Fork Squaw Creek (at the stream's mouth). The culvert blocks the upstream migration of bull trout, chinook salmon, steelhead, and cutthroat trout. The project proposal is to replace this culvert with a wide-spanning (50 feet) bridge, restoring upstream passage of fish and amphibians to at least 5 miles of habitat and restoring the functioning of the stream's floodplain. The total cost of the project, $100,000, is broken out below: ITEM ESTIMATED COST Substructure $32,000 Superstructure $37,000 Foundation $8,000 Bridge Rail $2,800 Approach Rail $5,000 Mobilization $5,200 Removal/Disposal, Hauling, etc. $10,000 TOTAL $100,000
