Trail Alert 11/7-9: Eastrail closed near Sound Transit construction

Map of the trail closure and detour route.The Eastrail will be closed later this week near the under-construction Sound Transit light rail station in north Bellevue. The detour has folks leaving the trail near the South Kirkland Park and Ride and taking Northrup Way and 120th Ave NE to Spring Blvd.

Only a short stretch of trail next to the site is closed, but the long detour is needed to get folks around it because freeway hell really limits the bike route options (also why a complete Eastrail will be so great some day).

Details from Sound Transit:
