Springwater Corridor Bridges

Project Update

On Monday, September 11, 2017, the Springwater Corridor will be closed all day between SE 45th - SE 55th Avenue to all users. This is to allow for geotechnical drilling work that will help inform the future new bridge design. A signed detour route will be in place during the closure.

Project Overview

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 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.

As a Phase 2 project of the Parks Replacement Bond, the timber bridge decking of the Bridge #140 located at SE Circle Ave will be replaced with slip-resistant asphalt deck. More information will provided about this project's schedule once available.
