Levee repair work begins along Snoqualmie Valley Trail in Carnation, minimal trail impact

Summary

King County is repairing 70 feet of Tolt River levee where the Snoqualmie Valley Trail intersects with Northeast 32nd Street, south of the City of Carnation. No trail closures are expected.

Story

King County, as a service provider to the King County Flood Control District, will be working to repair a 70-foot section of the Remlinger Levee along the left bank of the Tolt River this summer. The work will be done where the Snoqualmie Valley Trail intersects with Northeast 32nd Street just south of the City of Carnation.

Trail users and the community can expect traffic and construction noise during construction hours-weekdays from 7a.m. to 5p.m. and heavy equipment traffic along Northeast 32nd Street. Trail closures or traffic disruptions are not anticipated with construction expected to begin Monday, July 30 and end on Friday, August 31.

The Remlinger Levee reduces the risk of flooding to a local commercial development, the Snoqualmie River Trail and downstream properties. The levee portion under repair has been damaged by flooding and erosion.
