The project includes replacing the existing culvert. The new culvert will create an easier passage for native migratory fish like salmon and steelhead, some of which are listed as endangered species. Improving fish passage aligns with our commitments to the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds. 

Project Details: 

  • ​Removal of old culvert.

  • Installations of new culvert. 

  • Reconstruction of streambed to encourage native fish migration.

  • Roadway repairs, guardrail and striping within project limits.

During construction there will be lane closures and delays up to 20 minutes. We will maintain two way traffic will during the duration of the project. The projects will be done in stages to make sure that freight and passenger vehicles will be accommodated.
