This project page features the most recent activities on the project. For more details on the project click here.

The goal of the project is to restore the Ebright Creek crossing at East Lake Sammamish Parkway to allow fish, especially native Kokanee salmon, to swim upstream. To achieve this, the project will remove the two existing 30-inch concrete culvert pipes and replace them with a fully fish passable box culvert. The approximate cost to design and construct is $2 million. Construction is planned for Summer 2021.

    Consider visiting Ebright Creek during Salmon SEEson to view the salmon in their natural habitat. More info on other viewing sites and directions/parking is provided below.

    Fall is coming and salmon will be returning to streams and rivers throughout King County to spawn. The 14th annual Salmon SEEson program will run from late August through November, promoting self-guided salmon viewing sites as well as virtual tour opportunities. If you decide to visit a self-guided site near you, please remember to recreate responsibly: plan ahead, practice physical distancing, wear a mask, choose a site near you, leave no trace, and contribute to an inclusive experience for all. Check out the Salmon SEEson website for more information on self-guided and virtual viewing opportunities!
