US 101 - Indian Creek - Remove Fish Barrier - Completed March 2023

Project overview

This project removed and replaced an outdated culvert under US 101 west of Port Angeles at Indian Creek. To keep traffic moving, crews constructed a temporary bypass bridge near the site as the new bridge over Indian Creek was built.

The culvert was replaced with a new 180-foot concrete girder bridge for improved fish migration.

This project restored more than 11 miles in potential habitat gain for migratory species.
