Miller Creek Fish Passage Improvement Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Environmental Services—your sewer and stormwater utility—is designing a project to replace an aging culvert underneath a driveway of Fred’s Marina. The new culvert will improve water quality, remove invasive vegetation, and restore important fish passage and habitat.
Construction is expected to begin in the Spring of 2024 and take about six months to complete.

What's Happening Now

Project designers have completed designs and are putting the project out to bid in the coming weeks. Work is anticipated to begin in late spring or early summer.

What to Expect During Construction

We want you to be safe around the work site. Please keep children, pets, bikes, cars, and trucks away from the tools, machines, supplies, and construction workers. A city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with construction concerns. Inspectors typically wear a hard hat and safety vest with “City of Portland” on the back. Learn more about what to expect during construction online at Construction Impacts.
