Fay Road near Duvall to close for three weeks for slope stabilization

  • Written by Valley View Staff

A section of Fay Road Northeast, southeast of Duvall, will close for three weeks this summer while the King County Road Services Division stabilizes the hillside above the roadway.

Crews will be regrading about 400 feet of unstable steep slope on the uphill side of Fay Road close to the State Route 203 intersection. The work is scheduled to start in late June or early July, and will take about three weeks to complete. That segment of Fay Road in the project area will be closed during construction.

This slope is being regraded because long periods of heavy rain and snow have saturated it in recent years, causing erosion and slides. The slides have exposed the roots of some tall trees, making them vulnerable to falling onto the road.

The project will remove trees, regrade the slope at a lower angle, and replant the area with native, low-growth vegetation to improve the stability of the problem area.
