Planning and design for linear infrastructure

For roads or other linear infrastructure projects, road corridor scale planning is undertaken to identify fish movement corridor crossings of the road and to establish the characteristics of road-waterway crossings and the goals for fish passage at these sites, including:

  • waterway characterization and habitat assessment
  • fish community assessment and fish movement
  • classification of fish movement corridors
  • fish passage provisions for priority crossings
