Pacific Northwest Research Station Road Maintenance

Road repairs are needed throughout the PNW Research Station’s network of research laboratories and experimental forests to ensure safe access for personnel and the public. Associated erosion control activities will improve water quality and ecosystem integrity. This infrastructure and erosion control improvement project includes grading and resurfacing roads, striping parking areas, and correcting drainage issues, for a total of $200,000. All projects are on Forest Service land, and most are underway or have been completed as of summer 2010. This work is occurring at the Corvallis and Wenatchee Forestry Sciences Laboratories, and on the H.J. Andrews, Wind River, and Starkey Experimental Forests.


These photos show improvements made to a reconstructed bridge over Bear Creek in the Starkey Experimental Forest, where PNW researchers have been studying the effects of grazing on ecosystems and wildlife since the 1940s.
