Eight-Month Closure on Ames Lake-Carnation Road NE Starting June 24

Starting on Monday, June 24th, Ames Lake-Carnation Road NE will be closed between West Snoqualmie Valley Road NE and NE 52nd St for an eight-month period.

This closure is necessary for crews to replace the century-old wooden bridge with a new, wider structure and straighter bridge approaches.

The updated bridge will enhance driver visibility and provide a safer, unrestricted crossing for trucks and vehicles of all sizes. Additionally, the new design aims to reduce the environmental impact on Ames Creek and the surrounding wetlands.

The road will be closed to all traffic, including pedestrians, bicycles, and emergency vehicles. Although there will be no signed detour, alternative routes are available.

The roads shown in purple above are all the alternate routes that can be used when Ames Lake Trestle Bridge is under construction.
