Bay Road Fish Passage

Bay Road Fish Passage CRP # 908012

This project is located on Bay Road just west of Bruce Road. It includes replacement of the existing 30-inch diameter culvert with a 12-foot diameter culvert, which will open up over 1/4 mile of additional spawning habitat on what is already the most productive Coho salmon stream in the California Creek basin.

Construction is planned to start approximately July 16, 2012. Bay Road will be closed at the project location 24 hours per day to all traffic, including emergency vehicles, for the duration of the project. A detour will be in place via Grandview Road and Valley View Road. Construction is expected to be complete by mid- to late-September.

Whatcom County received a $470,000 grant from the Federal Highways Administration for the project. The total project cost is approximately $560,000.
