BTWC Big Thompson River Restoration Design/Build

Description of Project: This work began at the US 34 bridge west of Glade Rd and ended just upstream of Morey Open Space.  The project included approximately 5,000 LF of river corridor. This area suffered extensive damage from the 2013 flood. The flood caused channel avulsion which completely filled and abandoned the old channel. The restoration treatments for this project included bank stabilization structures, erosion and sediment control structures, floodplain grading and a bench creation. Channel realignment included re-establishing the low flow channel, in-channel structures, and protection of infrastructure, earthwork, and revegetation.
