This project removed and replaced an outdated culvert under US 101 west of Port Angeles at Indian Creek.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.
What to expect
The construction at Indian Creek is now complete.
A tributary to the Elwha River for salmon and other migratory species, Indian Creek has been identified by biologists as a barrier to fish passage.
