Welcome to our online open house!
Welcome to the Washington State Department of Transportation’s SR 16 – SR 160 – Kitsap County Fish Passage Barriers – Remove Fish Barriers online open house. This project will remove fish passage barriers in Salmonberry Creek and Blackjack Creek.
The existing culvert, or channel, under State Route 160 (SE Sedgwick Road) on the Kitsap Peninsula is a barrier to fish. The culvert is undersized and elevated above Salmonberry Creek so that it is too high for fish to pass. The culvert prevents them from getting to other parts of Salmonberry Creek.
Blackjack Creek flows under both directions of SR 16 at the SR 160 (SE Sedgwick Road) interchange. There are three culverts under the interchange that act as barriers to fish. The culverts are undersized and the water flows too fast through the culverts.
This online open house will provide information about:
- Why we are doing this
- When this will happen and what to expect
- How to stay informed
- How to share your thoughts
