Draft 401 Certification - Idaho Transportation Department St. Joe River Bridge Replacement Project
Accepting Comments from November 30, 2017 to December 21, 2017
This action would authorize the Idaho Transportation Department to replace the Highway 3 bridge crossing over the St. Joe River. The new bridge will be 15 feet wider, will have one less pier in the water, and includes two 12-foot travel lanes, wider approaches, 6’ 6” shoulders, and sidewalks on both sides of the bridge. The new bridge will be located in the current bridge footprint.
Based on its review of the joint application for permit, DEQ certifies that if the permittee complies with the terms and conditions imposed by the permit along with the conditions set forth in this water quality certification, then there is reasonable assurance the activity will comply with the applicable requirements of the Clean Water Act, the Idaho water quality standards, and other appropriate water quality requirements of state law.
