BID NOTICE - Bull Creek Restoration Project - CLOSED

The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission is now seeking sealed bids for the project designated as the Bull Creek Restoration Project. The project is located along Bull Creek, between Sheridan Rd. and the Union Pacific Railroad in the Village of Beach Park, Illinois.

The project consists of the restoration and enhancement of Bull Creek within the project reach and includes: the enhancement and installation of rock riffles to provide grade control and additional aquatic habitat; the installation of rock toe to stabilize eroding streambanks; the restoration of moderately eroded streambanks by re-grading and re-vegetating with native plant seed, native plant plugs, and erosion control blanket; the installation of rock checks to stabilize swales and gullies tributary to the stream channel; and the installation of native plant plugs to stabilize a steep slope area. It also includes clearing and tree removal; the installation of temporary construction access routes and stream crossings; the installation of temporary soil erosion and sediment control practices; the implementation of an in-stream work plan; and, the management of vegetation throughout the project reach. Upon completion, the project will address the deteriorating conditions along Bull Creek and will provide a long-term solution to the stream downcutting and widening and streambank erosion that is occurring within the project reach.
