Horsehaven Creek Culvert Replacements

Project Description 

The goal of these projects is to improve fish passage and address flooding issues on Horsehaven Creek, where it crosses under 150th Avenue East and 188th Street East near Orting.

The D230: Horsehaven Creek Culvert Retrofit project at 150th Avenue East has been postponed to summer 2023.

The existing culverts do not meet current fish passage requirements and there is water over the roadway several times each year. The planned improvements include removing the existing 36-inch culverts and replacing them with larger concrete structures at the two crossings.

Traffic Impacts

We will be reaching out to surrounding property owners to obtain temporary construction easements as we get closer to construction.  


Pierce County will seek grant funding to combine with Surface Water Management Funds for these projects.
