This project involves re-routing 2,200 feet of Padden Creek from the existing brick tunnel into a natural stream channel to allow fish passage, improve habitat and reduce flooding. WSDOT is removing the fish barrier by building a bridge in the vicinity of 20th Street.
Accomplishments: Design of the creek reached the the 90%
level. Permitting continues.
Next Milestones: The 90% drawing set will be presented to the Happy Valley Neighborhood Association at their quarterly meeting on November 20, 2014. Work will continue toward the 100% final set. Bidding is anticipated in February or March 2015. Construction anticipated to begin in June 2015.
