Project Financials -- See separate project financials website here.
Description --The proposed project involves elevating approximately 1,500 feet of Main Street a height of 4 to 6 feet (and 8-10 feet at the culverts themselves). Additionally, 150+ feet of opening would need to be installed near the intersection of Main Street and 11th Street to provide an overflow path for Skookumchuck River flood waters. The opening will likely consist of multiple box culverts or a bridge.
Flood Hazard Reduction Benefits -- Overbank flooding on the Skookumchuck River results in the closure of Main Street near the intersection with 11th Street in the Town of Bucoda. Approximately 50 residences (25% of the Town) located south of 11th Street are isolated from emergency services during high flow events. In January 2009, the homes and citizens were cut off from the rest of town for two days.
Project Status --"On-Hold" (see 9-13-2016 update here).
