Remove three road crossings that are an aquatic passage barrier for southern steelhead trout within federally designated critical habitat in the Manzana Creek watershed in the Zaca Fire Scar of Los Padres National Forest. Project will replace two crossings with clear span vehicular bridges to improve safe access for public use and the third barrier will be restored to a naturalized creek channel, opening more then three miles of stream and restoring almost 0.5 acres of habitat.
