This project built a bridge for SR 164 over Pussyfoot Creek on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation east of Auburn. This opens an additional 9.3 miles of habitat for salmon and other fish. The old culvert had conditions that make it difficult or impossible for fish to travel upstream.
What to expect
During construction, from July 12, 2021 to Oct. 14, 2021, SR 164 was closed to through traffic between Southeast 400th Street and 212th Avenue Southeast. Due to the complications of overabundant rainfall in late 2021, some of this work was rescheduled for 2022. Single lane closures will continue as needed in 2022 while crews finalize utility, slope and landscaping work; those dates will be shared here when scheduled.
