Weekday closures on the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Road

A federal road reconstruction project on the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Road began May 5, which will result in weekday closures of the road, from Valley Camp on. The road will be closed from noon Mondays through noon Fridays, now through Friday, Oct. 31. Dorothy Lake Road (Upper Couplet) will be closed to public traffic throughout the project.

Survey and staking is scheduled to continue next week. In addition, the contractor will install orange construction fence to delineate sensitive areas, and install erosion control devices. Clearing and earthwork will continue near the timber bridge and the 588+50 bridge (west of Taylor River bridge). Test piles will be driven at both bridges.

A calendar showing the planned closures for 2014 may be found on the project website at
