Story

Repair work along King County Parks’ Preston-Snoqualmie Trail will require a brief closure of a short stretch of trail west of Snoqualmie on Thursday, May 15, from 7 a.m. to 12 noon.

Crews will work May 15 and 16 to repair root damage and repave portions of a mile-long stretch of the trail between the Lake Alice parking lot trailhead and a small bridge located one mile to the west.

Intermittent delays should be expected as new pavement is being laid down over the trail bed, and flaggers will guide trail users safely around the work zones.

However, there is no room for a detour when the repaving work reaches the bridge. Trail users are encouraged to explore other portions of King County Parks’ 175-mile regional trail system during the brief closure.

The Preston-Snoqualmie Trail runs seven miles along a historic railroad right of way from Preston to just west of Snoqualmie Falls and the City of Snoqualmie.
