Total width would be 104-114 feet wide. A total of 8 stream crossings would be required for the project. The crossings would be accomplished with a variety of culverts, ranging from 18-inch diameter to 36-inch diameter round culverts, with two of the crossings (Sheets 10 & 11) using box culverts with simulated in-stream substrate. Excluding the area previously impacted from the existing trail, the project would place 3192 cubic yards (cy) of Type II and 1044 cy of Type IIA, and 171 cy of Pavement, 171 cy of leveling course, 114 cy of base course, 200 cy of Riprap in the ditches, and 4950 cy of unclassified excavation material into 1.77 acres of wetlands and place 641 linear feet of streams in culverts.
