Project Overview

Bear Creek has been slowly migrating into the Avondale Road embankment north of Novelty Hill Road causing the embankment to settle and undercut the sidewalk.

This project will restore and enhance a section of Bear Creek by re-channeling it, installing large woody debris, creating a side channel or backwater habitat, and restoring the buffer with native plantings. As part of the restoration, existing riprap boulders and a PSE guidewire will be removed.

The project will also stabilize the embankment and repair existing stormwater outfalls that are damaged.

SEPA information for this project can be found on the Avondale Road Bank Erosion page.
