In planning stages since 2001. Shared project between Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Public Works and Small Craft Harbours Branch of DFO. The partners share the costs and the resultant credits, as well as the future cost- and time-savings associated with the environmental permitting of some of their new projects that require habitat compensation. DFO-SCH has subsequently paid for 75% of the $1.4 million project costs and receives 75% of the habitat credits. Restoration activity: culvert replacement in 2005 restored tidal flushing.
