Reach 7 extends from the Townsites of Riverside and Raymond, upstream to the headwaters. Reach 7 continues along State Highway 7, south of Highway 72 junction. Although the stream channel is constrained due to the canyon geometry, the flooding event disrupted the biological connectivity of the stream and damaged residential structure in the floodplain.
There are currently no projects in progress in Reach 7 confirmed to be in progress but CDOT has laid out plans to address the infrastructure of Highway 7. On the CDOT website there is a plan to place more permanent construction solutions along the highway but there hasn’t been an update in nearly four years.
