The Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Road Project will reconstruct approximately 9.7 miles of the Middle Fork Road, from milepost (MP) 2.7, just past the couplet, to Middle Fork Campground at MP 12.4. The project will construct a 20-foot paved roadway with sections of 18-foot width used in constrained locations. Minor horizontal and vertical alignment adjustments will be made as needed to improve safety and blend with the context of the valley. Two bridges will be reconstructed and one bridge replaced with a culvert. Numerous existing roadway culverts will be replaced. Signing and other roadside safety features will be upgraded.
Construction is anticipated to occur from late-April through October in 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2017 construction would be expected to be primarily paving operations, occuring from late-April through July.
The Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Road is located north and east of the City of North Bend, which is approximately 30 miles east of Seattle along I-90.
