Springwater Corridor Bridge Replacements

Project Overview

Bridge #48 (SE 45th Avenue)

Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Bridge #48 on the Springwater Corridor will be replaced, and that portion of trail will be stabilized. This bridge is located near the Johnson Creek Boulevard trailhead at SE 45th Avenue and Johnson Creek Boulevard. It is the original wooden trestle bridge with footings in Johnson Creek and needs complete replacement. Additional repairs may be needed to stabilize the bank.

Construction is expected to start in mid-April 2019, with completion in October 2019. During construction, the trail will be closed from SE 45th Avenue to SE 55th Avenue, and a signed detour route running south of the trail will be in place. Some staging will occur in the adjacent Johnson Creek Trailhead parking lot. The parking lot may be closed periodically - up to five days at a time - to allow for construction staging of large materials for the bridge. 

Bridge #140 (SE Circle Avenue)

As a Phase 2 project of the Parks Replacement Bond, the timber bridge decking of the Bridge #140 located at SE Circle Avenue will be replaced with slip-resistant asphalt deck. Work will take 6-8 weeks. During construction, the trail will be closed, and a detour route along Circle Avenue will be in place. More information will provided about this project's schedule once available.
