The City of Puyallup is looking to replace the aging, undersized, fish blocking, and failing culvert beneath 11th St SW at Meeker Creek (1000 Block of 11th St SW). The culvert will be replaced with a new, fish-friendly concrete box culvert.
Other activities include roadway improvements, utility relocations, and safety improvements.
Updated 2/2/2023. The design is complete and the project is currently advertised for bidding. The bid opening is scheduled for 2/14/2023. Construction is anticipated to begin in early-Summer 2023, with the bulk of construction occurring during the WDFW HPA permitting window of July 16 - August 31st. Construction is anticipated to be complete around September 2023.
11th St SW will be closed during construction, at the 1000 block. 11th St SW is a minor, low-volume, residential roadway, so no formal detour routes will be established. However, access for all residences will remain, as much as possible. The contractor and/or City will coordinate with property owners if conflicts arise. The Puyallup Loop trail will also be closed and the route will be detoured around the work area.
