Project description

Old Cascade Highway/Miller Bridge East Improvements Project - This project makes drainage and pavement improvements on Old Cascade Highway and constructs a turnaround on the highway at the east bank of the Miller River.

Why is King County doing this project?

This project will make improvements to damaged and remaining portions of the Old Cascade Highway. In January 2011, a winter flood tore through the Skykomish Valley and changed the course of the Miller River. The flood destroyed a 100-foot section of the Old Cascade Highway, severing it into two sole access roads on both sides of the river, and left the Miller River Bridge #999W damaged and cut off from the road. In order to maintain the use of this sole source road and to prevent possible additional damage, this project will improve the drainage and resurface a portion of the existing roadway. In addition, a turnaround on the east side of Old Cascade Highway will be constructed to provide a safer terminus and a portion of the pavement from the river bank to the turnaround will be removed.
