ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION UPON MICHIGAN WOODLOTS AND WETLOADS--PHASE II

To determine the ecological effects of highway construction upon Michigan woodlots and wetlands, 10 sites located along a 95 mile segment of I-75 between Roscommon and West Branch were studied. In Phase I, these sites were examined in respect to several natural science parameters. Soils hydrology, water quality, forestry and wildlife. This study provided a continued evaluation, analysis and interpretation of data developed during Phase I where required additional data was obtained and correlated. A conceptual framework built in ecological principles for objectively evaluating key interrelationships having natural science parameters, as they relate to environmental impacts resulting from highway construction, is presented in the study. /FHWA/
