This Trail Alert is a new feature for Seattle Bike Blog. I will be posting official notices about bike route closures and detours that we receive. Some will be a significant hassle, some will be no big deal. But the hope is to keep them organized in one place as best we can to help keep people informed. You can easily find the alerts by clicking “Bike Route Alerts” in the navigation bar above.
From King County Parks:
Important safety repairs to a bridge surface along King County Parks’ Soos Creek Trail near Kent will require a brief closure of the trail in the area – with no detour available.
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.
Thank you for your patience during this brief closure. We’ll have the trail open for you to enjoy as soon as we are able.
