SR 3 – Chico Creek – Remove Fish Barriers Project – Project background

WSDOT created the Fish Passage Barrier Removal Program in 1991. The program finds and corrects barriers that restrict or block fish access.

The U.S. District Court in 2013 issued a permanent injunction. The permanent injunction requires the state to speed up barrier correction. Chico Creek is among those included in the federal injunction.

Project funding

$57.6 million is set aside for this project. This includes environmental study, design engineering, and construction.
