More detail from King County:
Sunday Creek Bridge will be closed starting Oct. 31
Sometimes a bridge just can’t be repaired or upgraded. That’s the case with the Sunday Creek Bridge, a small span located in a remote area 17 miles northeast of North Bend. The bridge on North Fork Road Southeast will be closed at noon on Oct. 31, and will not reopen until the King County Road Services Division can replace it.
The condition of the bridge has reached a point where county bridge engineers do not feel it is safe for traffic. The replacement project is tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2009, but construction funding is still pending.
There are no homes beyond the bridge. It is used mostly by recreationalists, logging and quarry companies, and the forest service.
That bridge is quite a ways up the North Fork Road, but unfortunately does cut off some geocaches, including my Blackhawk Mine.
