Part of Snoqualmie River to close for 4 months at Fall City

A two-mile stretch of the Snoqualmie River in Fall City will be closed to the public for four months starting June 2 because of construction taking place in the river, the King County Sheriff’s Office said today.

The closure area starts just downstream of the Highway 202 bridge in Fall City and extends to roughly one mile upstream from the boat ramp at Neal Road.

The reason for the closure is that construction from the Upper Carlson Floodplain Restoration Project will pose a threat to boaters and floaters on the river, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Updates on King County river closures and hazards are available here.
