Muir Woods Salmon Habitat Enhancement and Bridge Replacement Project Draft Environmental Assessment


The National Park Service (NPS) is pleased to announce the availability of the Muir Woods Salmon Habitat Enhancement and Bridge Replacement Project Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for a 45-day period of public review and comment. This document evaluates the restoration of habitat in Redwood Creek for aquatic life, including the endangered Coho salmon, and replacement of aging pedestrian bridges in Muir Woods National Monument. This Draft EA was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The public is also invited to provide comment on issues and concerns regarding cultural resources within the project area in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

The National Park Service invites your review and comment on the document. The document can be downloaded below under "Document Content"; in consideration of large file sizes, the main document and the appendices have been split and can be downloaded separately. All comments on the Draft EA will be reviewed and considered. Substantive comments will be identified and responded to in a Comment Analysis Report. A substantive comment is a comment that raises, debates, or questions a point of fact or policy discussed in the Draft EA. Comments in favor of or against the proposed action or alternatives or comments that only agree or disagree with NPS policy are not considered substantive. Although all comments will be read and considered in shaping the Final EA, only those determined to be substantive will be explicitly addressed by the NPS response.

The public comment period for the Draft EA will end on May 18th, 2017. Please see the main project page for additional information about the project. Written comments may also be mailed to:

Golden Gate National Recreation Area
Attn: Muir Woods Salmon/Bridges
Building 201, Fort Mason
San Francisco, CA 94123-0022

Mailed comments must be postmarked by May 18th, 2017, to ensure that your comment will be considered.
