City of Port Angeles Selects Parametrix for 106-Year-Old Culvert Repair Project

Bremerton, WA – Peabody Creek Culvert, located within the City of Port Angeles, needs repairs after over a century in use. Parametrix will perform hydraulic analysis and preliminary design for the project.

The 1,070-foot-long culvert runs along South Lincoln Street and crosses under East 1st Street and East Front Street, which are designated as SR 101.

In addition to being structurally deficient, the culvert blocks fish passage because of its slope. This project will consider alternatives to create a fish-passable culvert or to mitigate elsewhere. The Peabody Creek Culvert is on a state fish passage injunction list but is considered a low priority because of limited habitat upstream.

The project team, led by Parametrix, includes Shannon & Wilson and Willamette Cultural Resource Associates.

Parametrix was also recently selected as the prime consultant supporting the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Olympic Region fish barrier removal program that will replace 22 fish barrier culverts. The Peabody Creek Culvert is not a part of that program.
