Environmental Services and its partners are working on a project to replace a culvert on Tryon Creek under Boones Ferry Road with a bridge. The existing culvert blocks all upstream fish passage and is too small to allow adequate flow during wet weather. The project will:
Allow fish to pass into Upper Tryon Creek and Arnold Creek upstream of Boones Ferry Road;
Improve stream flow;
Install large wood and rock to protect fish habitat, reduce erosion and improve water quality;
Protect an exposed sewer pipe on Tryon Creek upstream of the culvert;
Provide pedestrian and wildlife passage through the new bridge;
Provide trail connectivity to the Tryon Creek State Natural Area North Creek Trailhead;
Trail enhancements include a trail under the bridge, stairs to the roadway, and a widened shoulder to the North Creek trailhead.
