Fanno Creek, between Denney and Hall boulevards, is flanked by residential development to the east and light industry to the west, giving thousands of people ready access to nature just steps from their homes or jobs.
Without its natural curves, the straightened creek has developed unnaturally steep banks prone to erosion.
Replacing the culvert with an attractive pedestrian bridge is expected to reduce flooding.
The undersized culvert thwarts fish passage and contributes to trail flooding.
