Snohomish County Public Works recently acquired four parcels of land in the lower Little Bear Creek Watershed near Woodinville. The 17 acres aquired will be used as part of an advanced mitigation effort. To accomplish this effort, there are several buildings on the site that will be demolished.
This effort is to restore wetlands and stream habitat on the site, preserve other areas, and enhance some areas to compensate for impacts associated with future roadway projects.
Demolition of the buildings on site is expected to begin in late 2018. Restoration work, including planting native vegetation, will occur at a later phase in the project.
There is no expected traffic impact for this project
Funding for this project is provided by the Snohomish County Road Fund.
