Snohomish County Public Works has wrapped up construction for the season on this project and will resume in summer. Crews made great strides by placing the new 21-foot fish passable steel arch culvert on Jim Creek. Fish are using the new culvert as it eliminates a barrier to passage on the waterway. The project will be completed in summer 2022, as Jim Creek Rd remains a signalized one-lane road over the winter.
Snohomish County is scheduled to replace the existing culvert in the 19900 block of Jim Creek Rd, east of Arlington, during summer 2021. The existing six-foot by six-foot concrete culvert has been deemed a fish-passage barrier. The project will replace the culvert with a single 21-foot steel arch culvert.
Construction for this project is scheduled for July through the beginning of September 2021.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane during construction. The single lane will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
Construction for this project is estimated at $900,000 and will be funded through the Surface Water Management Utility Fund and the Road Fund.
