The first phase of construction (Area 2) consists of replacement of the existing chute and stilling basin and replacing it with a new chute, flip bucket, and armored apron. The second phase (Area 3) consists of the replacement of the existing side-channel inlet structure and tunnel with a piano key weir spillway crest structure, sloped trough, and channel crossing beneath Crow Dam Road.
