The culvert underneath West Sequim Bay Road will be replaced later this summer with a 31-foot-long, 31.5-foot-wide precast concrete bridge.
The wider, 28-foot opening will allow salmon to return to the estuary for habitat, food and security.
The approximately five-acre, 100-year-old Pitship Estuary is adjacent to the intersection of West Sequim Bay Road and Whitefeather Way. It is a saltwater marsh fed by the freshwater Silver Springs.
The North Olympic Salmon Coalition is funding the project with a $382,500 grant. The city is committed to providing $50,000 of in-kind engineering or other services as a match toward the grant.
Project bids will be opened at 2 p.m. Monday, July 13, at the Sequim Public Works office, 615 N. Fifth Ave. The project is expected to last 10 weeks.
The Sequim Gazette is located at 147 W. Washington Street in Sequim.
