As of Wednesday, Aug. 8, a portion of King County’s Cedar River Trail in Maple Valley has been closed to all users.
As part of the Belmondo Revetment Enhancement project, crew from King County Roads Services Division will be placing large rock along the river’s edge and building up the bank to curb river erosion that threatens a major fiber optic cable, the Cedar River Trail and State Route 169.
A half-mile stretch from the trail’s intersection at 16916 Renton-Maple Valley Rd. Southeast to the trail’s intersection at 201st Place Southeast will be closed for a month.
Because of the trail’s close proximity to both the river and State Route 169, there will be no designated detour around the closed portion of the trail.
Recreational trail users are encouraged to seek other portions of King County’s 175-mile regional trail system during the month-long closure of this stretch of the Cedar River Trail.
