Road crossing restoration work at Crooked Creek and an unnamed tributary in Girard Township will benefit recreationally relevant migratory fish and reduce non-point sediment and nutrient pollution into Lake Erie.

They were not designed to avoid potentially destructive consequences for the stream ecosystem.
