Draft Feasibility Report/Integrated Environmental Assessment Section 14 - Emergency Streambank and Shoreline Protection for Monroe, Nebraska

Published March 18, 2016
Expiration date: 4/1/2016

Summary: Starting in 2010, severe bank erosion along the Loup River immediately upstream of the 370th Avenue bridge, located south of Monroe, Neb. has continued to progress rapidly downstream towards the bridge and road approach. Because of the rate at which the river bank is eroding, including complete loss of the adjacent riparian buffer, it has been determined that the county road approach to the 370th Avenue bridge is imminently threatened. Loss of the approach road leading to the bridge would have economic impacts as this is a major primary roadway in the area with no close alternatives nearby to cross the Loup River. The road also serves as a major emergency route and as a secondary connecter between NE Highway 22 and US Highway 30.

Geographic Scope: Monroe, Platte County, Nebraska

Impacts: None

Decision/Date: Made following close of public comment period.
