Southeast Reinig Road will be temporarily closed June 15-Oct. 12 when construction takes place to repair a damaged revetment on the right bank of the Snoqualmie River.
StoryIn June, King County, as the service provider to the King County Flood Control District, will begin repairs to the Reinig Road Revetment located approximately 2.5 miles east of the City of Snoqualmie requiring a temporary closure along a portion of Southeast Reinig Road on the right bank of the Snoqualmie River.
Southeast Reinig Road will be closed near the project site for construction between approximately June 15 and Oct. 12. The closure area will be limited to Southeast 81st Street to 428th Avenue Southeast. Local access for emergency vehicles and residents living along this stretch of road will be provided, and the westbound lane will reopen by Sept. 6.
Project work includes repairing four damaged areas of the Reinig Road Revetment and installing a series of four log structures to shift high flows away from the riverbank. These improvements will increase stability of the revetment, reduce further erosion, and maintain the integrity of the riverbank and adjacent road.
To ensure public safety, traffic control will take place on Southeast Reinig Road and a detour route will be posted. Visit kingcounty.gov/reinigroad for more information, or contact Stella Torres, Project Manager, at 206-263-0969 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
