The Deschutes River trestle, a crossing on the Yelm-Tenino Trail that runs parallel to State Route 507, will be closed starting Wednesday, June 24, for structural repair.
According to Thurston County, the governing body that oversees the historic structure, work to replace the posts holding up the 270-foot trestle is expected to last through September.
This second phase of the project is expected to cost about $460,000. Roughly $300,000 in funding will come from the county’s parks impact fees and $160,000 will be allocated to the project from real estate excise tax dollars.
Back in 2018, the county renovated the top portion of the structure, which includes the path that runners and cyclists use.
