Biking Bis: Cedar River Trail segment will close for most of summer

A half-mile section of the Cedar River Trail between Renton and Maple Valley will be closed for most of the summer due so workers can conduct erosion control work.

So if you want to get in a good ride on the trail before it closes (man, that thing is ALWAYS closed), you have to get out there before July 8.

If you want to ride the length of the Cedar River Trail this summer, you better do it before July 8.

More flood and erosion control work along the Cedar River this summer means another section of the Cedar River Trail near Maple Valley will be closed. This marks the fourth year in a row that a section of the trail has been put off-limits to bicyclists and other trail users.

Work begins July 8 that will close the Cedar River Trail between 16916 Renton-Maple Valley Rd. S.E., to the trail’s intersection at 201st Place Southeast. That’s roughly a section between the Southeast Jones Road overpass and Cedar River Road intersection.

    Wow, that cuts out a lot of territory for us Seattleites–I typically ride the trail out to Cedar Grove Road and either onward to May Valley/Issaquah/Hobart. I’d love to hear if anyone else has a reasonable detour.

    If you don’t mind being “run down” you can ride the shoulder from Jones Rd, to Cedar Grove Rd., Going toward Maple Valley from Renton, get off the trail at Jones, cross at the light, ride the shoulder, cross back at the light at Cedar Grove. Looks like about a mile of nasty high speed riding…. not suitable for children.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if they coned off the shoulder, posted a lower speed limit, and narrowed the traffic lanes with barriers, to accomodate cyclists during the construction? It’s just half a mile.

    1. Yeah. Bike routes should be something we can count on.

    2. Gary

      If they just cut off the shoulder with a movable jersey barrier for that 1/2 mile and let cyclists ride that shoulder it would do it.

      As for slowing people down, that would be a good idea. That’s the location where that woman drove off the side of the road and lay in her car for several days before anyone noticed the car.
