Update July 24, 2013 – this work has been delayed
The lower portion of the couplet road (SE Middle Fork Road) will be closed from July 8 to August 2, 2013. King County is removing a deteriorating culvert and replacing it with a new fish passable one, including streambed gravel. This culvert scores high on the drainage priority list. Scouring is present at the culvert headwall, and the bottom is heavily corroded. The upper portion of the couplet, SE Lake Dorothy Road, will remain open for through traffic as a detour route.
