New full span bridges replaced the culvert crossings on the creek downstream of the road access driveway off State Route 104. A new full span concrete box culvert bridge was installed at the road access driveway that allows for full stream passage under the structure. Fish friendly gravel was placed under the bridge and streamside plants and vegetation were planted in areas disturbed by the work. These installations met Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife fish passage standards and eliminated the need for ongoing maintenance at each site while allowing for the full flow of water within the stream banks during storm events.
