Hefty cranes and rumbling dirt-moving machines line fields north of Stanwood off Pioneer Highway as construction crews recently initiated the final two phases of the Fisher Slough restoration project.

This week, an oscillating 12,000 pound hammer will drive a series of interlocking 65-foot sheet piles perpendicular to Fisher Slough on the east side of the highway. The temporary wall will hold back water and soil pressure as 240- foot-long pipes are placed underneath the slough, realigning Big Ditch along Pioneer Highway to the north.
