New bridge unleashes a trout stream in Michigan

A new bridge over the Black River in northeast Michigan has reconnected the upper 18 miles of the trout stream to Lake Huron. The $350,000 project replaced two culverts that disrupted the river’s natural flow and blocked fish passage.

The bridge restored the river’s natural flow, which improved the overall health of the waterway and provided miles of new habitat where lake-run coaster brook trout, steelhead and salmon can spawn. Read more here.
