COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Panhandle National Forest has launched a $1.8 million stream restoration project in northern Idaho.

The Moose Drool Watershed Restoration Project aims to improve fish passages and in-stream fish habitat on almost 34 square miles of land. The Coeur d’Alene Press (http://bit.ly/YE8znZ) reports that workers will also install more than 1,000 pieces of woody debris to improve the fish habitat in the streams.

The project is expected to take two years. Fisheries biologist Will Young says contractors are already working on half a dozen roads in the Horse Haven area near the headwaters of the Little Fork River.

Some impassable roads are being obliterated and other roads and trails will be rebuilt. Young says most of the work will be done on roads that cross streams, not main roads.
