Work to close Highway 531 lane
Washington State Department of Transportation crews plan to install guardrails this week at the site of the new Edgecomb Creek Fish Passage as the agency enters the final stages of the $3 million project. The guardrail work will require single-lane overnight closures on Highway 531, just east of 67th Avenue NE in Arlington.
The project features a new, wide culvert to ease passage for migratory fish in the creek, which the state also realigned to flow to the south of the highway, rather than beneath it. Two older culverts remain; one will be plugged, and the other will be left open for storm water drainage.
Improvements at Edgecomb Creek are among about 1,000 fish passage projects the state has undertaken to comply with a 2013 U.S. District Court ruling.
