Project Summary

Reconnecting the North Branch of the Platte River is a comprehensive effort to replace outdated crossings at the prioritized sites of #PLT-P3, P5, P10 on the largest, high quality tributary to the Platte mainstem. Partners have completed site surveys and are well underway with design, proposing to build a timber bridge, bottomless arch and recessed culvert to ensure natural channel conditions and provide passage for all aquatic species at all life stages and stream flows.
