Needs & benefits

This project provides for the improvement of Logan Creek fish passage along SR 538 in Mount Vernon located in Skagit County by replacing the existing culvert with a new buried fish passage structure. 

State highways cross streams and rivers in thousands of places in Washington State, which can impede fish migration. WSDOT has worked for nearly three decades to improve fish passage and reconnect streams to help keep our waterways healthy.
WSDOT fish barrier correction is a priority to improve habitat for salmon and other native species.
