Environmental Assessment for the Upper Hoh Road, West Twin Creek Bridge
The Environmental Assessment (EA) for West Twin Creek Bridge, Upper Hoh Road is now available for your review and comment. The environmental assessment analyzes two alternatives: No Action - Continued Use of the Temporary Bridge, and the Preferred Alternative - Construct New West Twin Creek Bridge. The preferred alternative consists of three independent elements: 1) constructing a new bridge across West Twin Creek, 2) removing the temporary bridge, and 3) removing the washed-out culverts from the streambed.
The preferred alternative includes a bridge design that allows for natural streamflow passage to occur, as well as passage of the 100-year flood. The proposed bridge would be economical and would allow for conventional construction methods to be used while minimizing impacts to the environment.
Please make sure your comments are postmarked or delivered to the park by June 13.
