WSDOT built a bridge for SR 11/Fairhaven Parkway over Padden Creek, exposing a section of creek in Bellingham that had been in a brick tunnel for more than 100 years. The project also built a new creek bed under and near the bridge. This improves habitat for native and migrating fish in Padden Creek.
| Protects Environment
Building the bridge and creating a new creek bed near SR 11/Fairhaven Parkway is the first step to improving fish habitat and passage in the area.
Partnerships & Cooperation
Throughout the process, WSDOT coordinated closely with the city of Bellingham.
