Stossel Bridge closed for repainting

Repainting of the landmark Stossel Bridge on Northeast Carnation Farm Road has been delayed from a planned July start.  It is scheduled to begin August 11 and is expected to be finished by November 7.

Repainting the bridge will require its complete closure for the duration of the project. Work crews will set up a containment system for all the lead-based paint to be removed as part of the project. They will also repair and straighten some beams.

Recommended detour routes include State Route 203, Northeast 124th Street, West Snoqualmie Valley Road, Northeast 80th Street and Northeast Carnation Farm Road.

The detour map is available on the project webpage, at
