Watch the Stark Street Culvert Time-lapse Video.
- Location: Beaver Creek and Stark Street crossing, just west of Troutdale Road. See map for project area.
- Schedule: Built 2017. Final paving completed 2018.
This project replaced an undersized culvert and fish ladder on the north side at the SE Stark Street crossing of Beaver Creek. It was replaced with a channel-spanning open bottom culvert that restored the natural streambed and allows for fish passage. The new culvert is 150 feet long, designed for a future project that will widen SE Stark Street to four lanes, with sidewalks and bike lanes in 2021. The cost of the contract for the culvert replacement is approximately $2.1 million.
An outreach event was held on May 20, 2017 at Skyland Pub. The meeting included this staff presentation on the project.
Outreach events were also held in August 2016 and a public meeting was held on December 9, 2015 at Mount Hood Community College to share information on the project design, construction schedule and traffic plan.
