Climate Change Impact on Coastal River Estuaries in Oregon

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will monitor the physical processes and the roadway features of the Salmon River Estuary to better understand the effects of changes to ODOT's facilities and various restoration efforts as well as sea level rise and climate change. The proposed data will targeted to form the foundation for ODOT's efforts to maintain the function of the coastal roadway system and to fulfill our obligation as environmental stewards. The Salmon River Estuary has been selected from the many estuaries crossed by ODOT highways because of the existence of past monitoring and changes that are already planned for the highway.
