The locations improved include:

Athey Avenue over Cranberry Creek in Hamilton Township: Removed three existing 24” diameter corrugated metal pipe culverts and replaced them with a 48’ L x 12’ W x 5’ H concrete box culvert to allow greater passage of aquatic life.

Stockwell Road over Middle Branch Cedar River in Hamilton Township: Stabilized the streambank using rip rap and added millings on top of the roadway to reduce soil erosion.

These projects were a collaboration with:

• Saginaw Bay Resource, Conservation & Development Area
• Little Forks Conservancy
• U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
• Trout Unlimited
• Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative Network
• Bay Area Community Foundation

Box culvert on Athey Road was provided at a discounted price by Northern Concrete Pipe.
