Renton, WA. The Cedar River Trail will be closed between Riverview Park and Maplewood Roadside Park, from April 18 through April 28, 2011. A new bridge abutment will be installed at the east end of the trestle bridge. Trail users will be re-routed through Riverview Park, along the sidewalk next to Maple Valley Highway, and back to the Cedar River Trail about 150 yards east of Maplewood Roadside Park. Numerous signs have been posted with information on the trail closure and detour route.

The trestle bridge at Maplewood Roadside Park, constructed nearly 100 years ago, is currently under repair for several deteriorating wood footings and columns. All repair work is scheduled to be completed by May 27, 2011.
