In summer 2013, Environmental Services and Portland Parks & Recreation replaced a culvert at the Eastmoreland Golf Course over a maintenance road. The old culvert (top right photo) was made of three pipes that constricted creek flow and prevented juvenile fish from traveling upstream. Replacing culverts with fish-friendly culverts will open up nearly three miles of prime salmon habitat in Crystal Springs Creek.
The new bridge spans the natural channel of the creek. A grant from East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District helped fund this project.
