SE 28th Avenue Culvert Replacement

In summer 2010, the City of Portland and Reed College worked together on projects to enhance Crystal Springs Creek and remove fish passage barriers. Reed College completed a site restoration and stream re-meandering project on the west end of the Reed Canyon. Environmental Services replaced a two-foot diameter culvert under SE 28th Avenue with a larger culvert to improve fish passage.
