This project involves removing fragments of asphalt and road-base material that have been scattered widely over some or all of 2,041 acres and 14 linear miles of the Fort Pickens, Santa Rosa, and Perdido Key areas of the Florida District of Gulf Islands National Seashore. There is also a small, two-mile-long area on the Gulf side of the Fort Pickens area where sections of the old road and some miscellaneous chunks of concrete may be removed from the intertidal and subtidal zones. These materials originated from roads damaged during several storms and hurricanes. Debris removal methods will involve primarily mechanized equipment, supplemented by small crews using hand tools. Vegetation that is destroyed during the clean-up process will be re-planted with like numbers and species.
