Ebright Creek Fish Passage Project Construction
Project construction is complete! Only minor corrections remain, so this is the last project update. There will be periodic single lane closures until utility reconnections are complete. Thank you for your interest and support in this project! We hope you will consider participating in Salmon SEEson this year by visiting a local creek to see fish spawning upstream this fall.

Traffic closure hours have been tightened through the work zone to 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with traffic merged to one lane.

Additionally, there will be construction traffic on ELSP.

- Project End Point: Approximately 900' south of the intersection of SE 8th Street / East Lake Sammamish Parkway SE
