The Eagle River Coalition and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) with the assistance of Colorado Parks & Wildlife’s (CPW) OHV grant program, asked Jacobs to look for potential cost-effective engineering solutions that would reduce impacts to the creek and wetland areas and would maintain the recreational use experience and values. Following an initial assessment of geology, constructability, and watershed health, Jacobs developed conceptual alternatives for consideration. The Forest Service has narrowed these alternatives based on hillside disturbance, private property impacts and project cost. The project team is seeking feedback from stakeholders on the proposal to make sure it aligns with the desired recreational activities.
