The South Fork of Thornton Creek flows eastward through culverts under 35th Ave NE at NE 107th Street in Meadowbrook. Work is underway this summer to widen and improve this channel of Thornton Creek. Instead of a straight, vegetation-choked channel, meanders will be created and a floodplain to absorb more water during rainy seasons, as part of the overall plan for The Confluence of the two branches of Thornton Creek. The culverts which carry the creek under 35th Ave NE are being replaced with much larger ones this summer. As part of digging up the creek, fish are being counted and conserved. Watch here:
