In summer 2022, our contractor began fish barrier corrections to replace two outdated culverts at Little Minter Creek under State Route 302. Since 2019, crews have completed paving and ADA ramp work for eight miles of SR 302 in addition to correcting three identified barriers to salmon and resident fish in Minter Creek. The project reached substantial completion in September 2022.
What to expect
This fall, travelers can expect intermittent daytime lane and shoulder closures, Monday through Friday, during daytime hours from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. while crews finish installing railing on top of the culverts and complete small work items on the project.
The work for Little Minter Creek is located between mileposts 11.4 and 11.5, or near 118th Avenue Northwest and 123th Avenue Northwest, respectively.
Beginning summer 2022, crews will return to Little Minter Creek near Purdy in Pierce County to replace outdated culverts under the highway.
