PURPOSE: The goal of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is to present the planning, design, construction and 10-year performance evaluation of a comprehensive streambank protection project constructed in an urban watershed (Figure 1). This project used a combination of bendway weirs and longitudinal peaked stone toe protection (LPSTP or stone toe) to protect bridge abutments, stabilize an eroding bank line, and initiate floodplain formation. The project features were adjusted to site conditions to minimize environmental impacts. The project is a good example of the use of bendway weirs and stone toe in combination to provide effective, economical, and environmentally sound streambank protection.
