Environmental Services is designing a project to restore the undersized and aging Tryon Creek culvert under SW Boones Ferry Road. The project will also protect a sewer line crossing Tryon Creek upstream of the culvert. In order to replace the existing culvert with a bridge, the project will close SW Boones Ferry Road for up to 7 months beginning spring 2018.
SW Boones Ferry Culvert Replacement Project: Construction Delayed Until Spring 2018
Environmental Services is designing a project to restore the undersized and aging Tryon Creek culvert under SW Boones Ferry Road. The project will also protect a sewer line crossing Tryon Creek upstream of the culvert. In order to replace the existing culvert with a bridge, the project will close SW Boones Ferry Road for up to 7 months beginning spring 2018. The new bridge will provide a safe, streamside crossing for pedestrians and wildlife, and the project will help protect public health, water quality, and the environment.

Working for clean rivers
Stormwater runoff can impact water quality in rivers and streams. Natural resources, like urban streams, forests, and wetlands manage stormwater naturally to protect water quality, public health, and the environment. Green infrastructure reduces flooding and erosion, provides cool, clean water to our rivers and streams, and adds wildlife habitat and urban green space for healthier watersheds.
