The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced that they will oversee the setting up new playground equipment for the future Dahlgren Family Park on November 8th. As a result, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. that day, there will be some traffic disruptions due to a crane operation in the area.
Specifically, the lane closures will impact the westbound lane and the center turn lane of SE North Bend Way near the crossroad with SE Tanner Road (refer to the provided map for details). There will be traffic signs in place to guide drivers, and flaggers will be stationed to direct the flow of vehicles taking turns using the eastbound lane.
Those traveling through this area may face delays ranging from five to ten minutes. To circumvent these delays, using Exits 32 and 34 off Interstate 90 is advised during the crane operation times. Please note that this schedule could change if the weather conditions are unsuitable for the work.
The City of North Bend apologizes for any inconvenience caused by these activities and appreciates the community’s patience and understanding as progress continues at the Dahlgren Family Park. The park’s new playground will feature a variety of equipment, including:
- An ADA-accessible canoe play structure.
- Climbing structures made from logs and ropes.
- Bouncy toys for kids.
- A saucer swing.
These selections were inspired by the park’s location near the Snoqualmie River and its past use as a pasture. The opening of the park is expected in spring 2024. For more information on Dahlgren Family Park, see our article here.
