King County Parks must close a bridge that carries the Cedar River Trail near Landsburg in mid-June to repair the structure that was damaged by a falling tree earlier this year.
A repair project to replace a damaged deck panel and bridge rails will require closing a portion of King County Parks’ Cedar River Trail near Landsburg, June 12-16.
The project will involve removal and replacement of the handrail, fencing and concrete decking on a portion of the bridge, which was damaged by a large tree that fell across the structure this past winter.
There is no designated detour around the closed portion of the trail, which is near the southern terminus of the 17.3-mile-long Cedar River Trail that closely follows the river from near where it enters Lake Washington in Renton upstream toward the City of Seattle watershed, east of Landsburg.
This $40,000 project is funded through the 2014-19 King County Parks, Trails and Open Space Replacement Levy through the Bridge and Trestle Program, which inspects and maintains the 76 bridges and trestles along the county’s 175-mile regional trail system.
