Story

Important safety repairs to King County Parks’ Green River Trail require a short closure of the pedestrian  bridge across the Duwamish River at Cecil Moses Park on Thursday, July 10.

The closure is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. and could last for about three hours, as crews repair the trail at the western approach to the pedestrian bridge. The work includes removing shallow tree roots that have buckled the trail surface and repaving the trail.

Similar work will also take place along this stretch of trail on Wednesday, July 9, but closing the trail won’t be required. Instead, flaggers will direct trail traffic around the work areas.

The Green River Trail winds more than 19 miles from Cecil Moses Park near Seattle’s south boundary to North Green River Park in south Kent near Auburn.
