Traffic Notice: WSDOT to Close the Snoqualmie River Bridge May 10-14

The Washington State Department of Transportation will begin a four-mile paving project on State Route 202 between Snoqualmie Falls Park and Boalch Avenue NW. The project will begin with a full closure of the Snoqualmie River Bridge, starting 10 p.m. Monday night, May 10, through 4 a.m. Friday morning, May 14. 


From the WSDOT post:

“Fresh pavement is on its way for SR 202 in Snoqualmie. On May 10 a construction crew kicks off a project to repave almost four miles of the highway between Snoqualmie Falls and Boalch Ave NW.  First up: the Snoqualmie River bridge, which will be closed around-the-clock from 10 p.m. Monday, May 10 to 4 a.m. Friday, May 14.  The bridge sidewalks will stay open for pedestrians.  There aren’t too many alternate routes in the area so give yourself plenty of time to travel through.  A signed detour will use a combination of Snoqualmie Parkway, I-90 and Preston-Fall City Road.  In addition to repaving, the contractor will update the 90-year-old bridge with new expansion joints and waterproof membrane to protect it against the elements.”
