Snohomish County replaced the culvert in the 19900 block of Jim Creek Rd, east of Arlington. The former six-foot by six-foot concrete culvert was deemed a fish-passage barrier. The project replaced it with a single 21-foot steel arch culvert and eliminates the fish-passage barrier.
Construction for this project began in 2021 and was completed in fall 2022.
Traffic was reduced to a single lane during construction. The single lane was controlled by temporary traffic signals.
Construction for this project cost $900,000 and was funded through the Surface Water Management Utility Fund and the Road Fund.
