PERFORMANCE OF CHANNEL CHANGES

INVESTIGATIONS WERE MADE OF THE CONDITION IN 1964 OF NINE CHANNEL CHANGES EXCAVATED IN CONNECTION WITH HIGHWAY BRIDGES CONSTRUCTED IN THE PERIOD 1951 TO 1963. CHANNEL CHANGES MADE TO CUT THROUGH A MEANDER NECK OF THE ORIGINAL CHANNEL TO PERMIT ADVANTAGEOUS PLACEMENT OF THE BRIDGE HAVE FUNCTIONED SATISFACTORILY. FOR CHANNELS NOT RESTRICTED BY THE BRIDGE, SOME BANK STABILIZATION MAY BECOME NECESSARY. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ACTIVITIES BE SUSPENDED UNTIL HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT OBSERVATIONS REVEAL SPECIFIC DAMAGE TO A CHANNEL AND INDICATE A NEED FOR A RESEARCH INVESTIGATION. /BPR/
