Town hall meeting set on flood-prone North Bend road

King County is exploring ways to protect roadways during flooding on Clough Creek south of North Bend, and is inviting people to attend a community discussion to find out more.

The next meeting is 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, at North Bend Elementary School, 400 E. Third St., North Bend.

Clough Creek crosses 415th Avenue and 415th Way Southeast in several locations south of Interstate 90 near the Uplands neighborhood. During the past winter, the road was closed 15 days due to flooding. Repairs to the roadway over the past three winter seasons have totaled more than $150,000.

The King County Road Services Division seeks to build a short span bridge on 415th Way to allow more water to flow under the roadway. If funding is found for the project, the earliest it could be built is the summer of 2010.

The division is hosting community discussion meetings on Aug. 11 and 13.
