The culvert replacement will improve Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout habitat within this stream reach. The existing 36-inch culvert will be replaced with a 15-foot span bottomless arch corrugated plate structure. In addition, existing road drainage will be improved by grading, construction of lead-off ditches and cross drains; on the section of road from the new crossing to 400 yards above. All project work will occur within the existing roadway. Project work will be done by the Forest road crew using a backhoe, trackhoe, bulldozer, and large trucks.
