Project Summary

Huron Pines and partners will reconnect 20 miles of coldwater habitat, restore natural river processes in the Thunder Bay River, and address road safety and stormwater runoff issues through the replacement of two problematic road/stream crossings with new, channel-spanning timber bridges. The proposed project sites are Lutz Road/Thunder Bay River and Hossler Road/Thunder Bay River, located in Montmorency County, Michigan. These sites were prioritized based on road/stream crossing inventory data collected throughout the watershed.
