Bley Road Culvert

An undersized and perched culvert on Bley Road is contributing to downstream bank erosion on the Little Net River. Working with Holyoke Township, Carlton County Transportation Department and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the culvert will be replaced with a bridge in 2020.

Bank Stabilization

Thanks to a BWSR Clean Water Fund Grant, the downstream bank  will be stabilized to reduce erosion, resulting in improved habitat for fish. The culvert replacement will also reconnect the stream, removing an important barrier to fish passage.
