SR 16 - Anderson Creek Tributary to Sinclair Inlet - Remove Fish Barriers - Completed September 2017

As part of WSDOT's ongoing program, crews removed barriers to fish on Anderson Creek underneath State Route 16, State Route 166 and Anderson Hill Road.

Removing the barriers is intended make the stream more maneuverable for salmon, extending usable habitat.


How you benefit

Protects environment
Large box culverts under SR 16, SR 166 and Anderson Hill Road will improve fish passage and increase fish habitat by approximately 1 mile.

This project replaced outdated culverts that are a barrier for fish with culverts that are built wider than the existing stream channel, and are sloped at a similar grade as the natural stream. The work simulates what is found in a natural stream bed.
