WSDOT is working closely with the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe to reopen salmon habitat in Pussyfoot Creek this summer. Construction of a bridge over the creek to replace a culvert is scheduled to start July 5. The culvert is undersized and sections inside the existing culvert create conditions that make it very difficult or impossible for salmon and other fish to travel upstream.
This project is part of an ongoing effort to improve fish passage through the state’s highway system. To learn more and find other barrier correction projects, please visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/fishpassage
