Crews working on a project for the McKenzie Watershed Council have placed five concrete panels to create the base of a bridge over Quartz Creek. The bridge, which leads to Pond Road (USFS 805) is the initial phase of a larger-scale project to restore floodplain habitat across 180 acres in the Quartz Creek sub-watershed. The work was designed to help reduce the impacts of large flood events, capture fines and sediment, and enhance habitat for Chinook salmon, bull trout, and other native species.

Partners in the project include the Eugene Water & Electric Board, McKenzie River Trust, and Willamette National Forest. The bridge replacement is funded through the Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Law and managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
