Story

A safety project to replace rotted portions of three different Snoqualmie Valley Trail bridges in and near Duvall will require closure of the trail in the immediate area from Sept. 6 through Oct. 7.

The project will involve removing the handrail and concrete decking to replace rotten stringers at three bridges along the trail between Taylor Park and Duvall Park. These repairs were included in the voter-approved 2014-2019 King County Parks, Trails, and Open Space Replacement Levy and the work will be combined in order to reduce the closure time.

This $210,000 project is funded through the King County Parks Levy and is part of the ongoing Bridge & Trestle Program, which inspects and maintains the 76 bridges and trestles along the county’s 175-mile Regional Trails System.

The 31-mile-long Snoqualmie Valley Trail is the longest trail in the county’s system. The trail winds through the largely rural Snoqualmie River Valley, passing working farms and forests, as well as the cities of Duvall, Carnation, Snoqualmie and North Bend.

The trail connects with the cross-state John Wayne Pioneer Trail at its southern end and offers access to such notable destinations as Meadowbrook Farm and King County’s Tolt-MacDonald Park and Three Forks Natural Area.
