Upcoming Road Closures and Utility Work in the Fall City Area

Single-Lane Closure on Fish Hatchery Road for Utility Work, March 11-15

Due to utility work, Fish Hatchery Road near Fall City will experience a single-lane closure from 356th to 361st avenues southeast from Monday, March 11th through Friday, March 15th.

Flaggers will direct traffic from 8 a.m. to dusk, and drivers might face short delays. This utility work is part of preparations for a fish passage project on Skunk Creek, scheduled to start in early April.

The project, undertaken by contractor crews for the Washington State Department of Transportation, involves removing culverts on Fish Hatchery Road and State Route 202 that hinder fish movement and replacing them with bridges to restore natural stream flow.

The project will lead to a long-term closure of Fish Hatchery Road in the specified section and a temporary traffic alignment on SR 202 near Southeast 46th Street, though both lanes of SR 202 will stay open.

328th Way SE Closure for Bridge Maintenance, March 11-12

On March 11th and 12th, from morning at 7:00 am to the afternoon at 3:30 pm, 328th Way SE will be completely closed.

This stretch of road, from Preston-Fall City Road SE to 329th Way SE, won’t be open because a county crew will be busy with bridge maintenance and cleaning. Even though the road is closed to most, emergency vehicles can still get through the area where the work is happening.

If you’re curious about why and how bridges get a bath, you can learn more about the bridge washing program on King County’s website.
