Fish Hatchery Road was named after a 150-year-old fish hatchery located to the east that is supplied by natural springs that flow from the project area. Great care was taken to create a bicycle and pedestrian bridge crossing that allows travelers to safely cross the Nine Springs Creek, while not disturbing the underground springs and waterways. To avoid impacts during construction, groundwater monitoring wells were installed and alternative backfill materials were required to protect groundwater supporting the hatchery.
