Flood District repair project near Tolt-MacDonald Park begins Oct. 1; temporary trail closures expected

Summary

Repairs to a damaged levee along the Tolt River are about to get underway, and the work will require a temporary closure of a King County Trail south of Carnation.

Story

A King County Flood Control District project to rebuild afcd_color_2018 damaged section of levee along the Tolt River’s right bank is scheduled to begin Oct. 1. 

The Frew Levee is south of the City of Carnation and is designed to protect State Route 203 – a critical transportation corridor for Carnation and surrounding communities.

Crews will repair approximately 115 feet of damaged levee caused by flooding and erosion. Construction work will require a temporary closure for users of the Tolt River Trail near King County’s Tolt-MacDonald Park for safety purposes. 

Notice of temporary closure will be issued via King County Parks’ trail alerts and signage will be posted near the affected area.

Construction is expected to be completed by Oct. 15, followed by replanting the site with trees and shrubs through February 2019.

For questions about the Frew Levee Repair Project, contact Stella Torres, project manager, at 206-263-0969 or storres@kingcounty.gov.
