Where practical, use debris racks or ice booms to stop debris and ice before it reaches the bridge. Where significant ice or debris buildup is unavoidable, its effects should be accounted for in determining scour depths and hydraulic loads.

4 The impact of a bridge and its approaches on local communities, historic sites, wetlands, and other aesthetically, environmentally, and ecologically sensitive areas shall be considered. Compliance with state water laws; federal and state regulations concerning encroachment on floodplains, fish, and wildlife habitats; and the provisions of the National Flood Insurance Program shall be assured. Stream geomorphology, consequences of riverbed scour, removal of embankment stabilizing vegetation, and, where appropriate, impacts to estuarine tidal dynamics shall be considered.
