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

The goal of the project is to restore the Ebright Creek crossing at East Lake Sammamish Parkway. To do this, the project will remove the existing culvert pipes and replace them with a fully fish passable box culvert, with the goals of improving stream habitat and fish passage to support Kokanee salmon and other fish species. During construction, drivers can expect intermittent lane closures. Starting Monday, August 16th there will be a minimum 3-week closure of East Lake Sammamish Parkway at Ebright Creek to allow for installation of the box culvert.

Please check back for regular updates!

    What are the work hours for this project? I thought it was 7 days a week 7am to 10 pm, but I have been by the site and noticed no one there. Hoping this is finished soon!

    J asked 18 days ago

    During the full closure of ELSP, the normal work hours vary but are typically between 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM (8 hour shift with 1 hour lunch). The contractor is not working extended hours on a daily basis.

    Will cyclists be able to use the East Lake Sammamish bike trail to bypass the road closure?

    joggerbill43 asked 28 days ago

    Yes, bicyclists and pedestrians can use the East Lake Sammamish Regional Trail to detour around the closure. The map is available on the project page at https://connect.sammamish.us/ebright-creek.

    We are having a very hard time with ELSP being closed and incomplete information for an open date. Please clarify.

    MonikaR asked 17 days ago

    ELSP is scheduled to reopen on 9/16, but issues may arise that cause this date to change.
