Environmental Process Experience with Local Bridge Partnership Program and Mussel Discussion
During this presentation, Rick will walk through the ODOT environmental tasks within the Project Development Process (PDP), citing lessons learned while examining the first round of bridges under the Local Bridge Partnership Program. This summary of potential pitfalls and detours will help attendees find the shortest path on their journey to replacing or rehabilitating bridges.
This session will also include a discussion about the Mussel Protocol issued by ODNR in April 2014. The discussion will cover guidelines for conducting the newly required river and stream mussel surveys.
