Update – 11/23/21 Dutch Slough Restoration


The Dutch Slough Tidal Marsh Restoration Project is the first major tidal wetlands restoration site in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to be implemented by DWR. The project will transform 1,187 acres of land into tidal marsh to provide habitat for salmon and other native fish and wildlife.

The Marsh Creek Trail, just north of the BNSF tracks, has been closed while work progressed on the re-routing of Marsh Creek and building bridge abutments for the new section of trail. Recently the levee was breached at Marsh Creek and the creek rerouted and the abutments were completed. The trail will remain closed until the steel for the bridge arrives, February of 2022.
