The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe worked with a local landowner in Sequim, WA to remove a 600-foot long roadway and two culverts and replace them with a bridge in Washington Harbor.

The roadway and culverts were blocking tidal flow from flooding 37 acres of an estuary that was prime habitat for salmon. The results of the work, taking place from spring through early fall, were immediate, as biologists observed schools of fish, birds and other marine life taking advantage of the new free-flowing estuary immediately.
