Old Young’s Bay Bridge Permitting: Astoria, Oregon
The relocation of fiberoptic cables crossing the Old Young’s Bay Bridge in Astoria, Oregon required a wide range of permitting. Given the structural elements and surrounding natural environment, the permit strategy included cultural resources compliance for NHPA Section 106, ESA compliance documentation per a programmatic Biological Assessment, a Joint Permit Application in support of required cut and fill permit from Oregon’s Department of State Lands and the Corps Section 404 permits.
Mitigation of construction impacts to stream and estuary functions also necessitated compliance with local City of Astoria shoreline requirements along with restoration and compensatory mitigation planning documents. Otak provided a full array of permitting services for the development of this complete permit acquisition and strategy.
