Trail Alert: Green River Trail closed at Tukwila Intl Blvd until December

Map of the detour route.The Green River Trail is closed on the south side of the Duwamish River between Tuwila International Boulevard and E Marginal Way S until November 30. The City of Tukwila is working to daylight Riverton Creek, “which has been flowing through a pipe for roughly 50 years,” according to Tukwila.

The detour follows S 112th St and E Marginal Way S, which both have painted bike lanes most of the way. The only potential tricky part is turning left from Marginal to 112th when headed north, where the is no traffic signal. There is a center turn lane.

But the work sounds great, daylighting the creek as part of an effort to restore it and its coho salmon runs. There will also be new public art when the trail reopens.
