Funding for this project will be used to develop CEQA-ready engineering designs for road fill removal, a new bridge, and associated infrastructure to re-establish a dynamic estuarine system in Scott Creek Lagoon benefitting multiple threatened and endangered species, resulting in a more resilient ecosystem and transportation corridor.
Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission
Specific objectives of this Project are to: Develop CEQA-ready engineering designs for the final component of the Scott Creek Lagoon and Marsh Restoration Project including bridge designs that enable removal of the fill prism and restoration of ecological dynamism within the system, integrate the engineering designs with Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) – funded ecological restoration plans, and develop a strategic funding plan for implementation of the Scott Creek Lagoon and Marsh Restoration Project.
