This design-bid build fish barrier correction project replaces an outdated culvert along US 101 near Forks at May Creek. The existing 9-foot diameter metal pipe will be replaced with a 175-foot-long concrete girder bridge for improved fish migration.
What to expect
It's too soon to tell what the contractor may elect to do for traffic control measures.
Travelers should expect anything from reduced speeds, shifted lanes, alternating conditions with flaggers or a temporary signal while construction is underway. Any highway closures will be announced in advance.
US 101 at May Creek is currently 67% passable and in need for correction. Once complete, the work will increase fish habitat for salmon, coho, chinook and several other species.
