North Bend street to close for rail crossing makeover

The Northwest Railway Museum is reconstructing its Main Street railway crossing in North Bend this week, starting today, Monday, Jan. 21, through Saturday, Jan. 26.

The crossing, at Main and McClellan Street, is being updated to the same construction as the Bendigo/SR 202 crossing, built in 2000, with precast concrete panels for a smoother, longer-lasting driving surface.

Businesses will be accessible from North Bend Way or Park Street.

The project is being paid for in part by a grant from the Washington Utilities and Trade Commission, a tax rebate from the city of North Bend, donated materials from the city of Redmond, and retained earnings from the Northwest Railway Museum. Work is being done by RailWorks, local contractors Asphalt by George, and Imhoff Crane.

Northwest Railway Museum is located at 38625 S.E. King St., Snoqualmie. Learn more about the museum at
