July 23 & 30 Train Trestle Work Will Close Rainier Road - Thurston County
As BNSF Railways construction crews continue their work to replace the aging train trestle over Rainier Road Southeast and the Chehalis Western Trail, workers will need to close Rainier Road Southeast near the train trestle to all traffic on Thursday, July 23 and Thursday, July 30.
BNSF Railways began work on June 19 to replace the trestle that crosses Rainier Road Southeast just south of the Indian Summer Golf Course. The railroad company plans to coordinate the trestle replacement work with other construction projects and railroad closures in the area, and expects construction to last another four to six weeks. During construction, the one-mile section of the Chehalis Western Trail is closed with barricades placed on the trail near the construction site.
