Short closure required for safety repairs to King County Parks’ Soos Creek Trail bridge

Summary

Crews must make repairs to a bridge along the Soos Creek Trail near Kent later this month, and the work will require a half-day closure along a stretch of the trail.

Story

King County Parks must close a portion of the Soos Creek Trail near Kent later this month for important safety repairs to a pedestrian bridge that spans Soos Creek.

The repairs are scheduled to take place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, when crews will remove asphalt from the bridge deck that is cracked and allowing water to seep into the substrate – threatening the structural integrity of the bridge.

Because there is no detour available around the bridge, the trail will be closed during the repair work from the Southeast 256th Street trailhead to the north and the 148th Avenue Northeast trailhead to the south.
