State proposes paving a stretch of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road
This part of the river has come a long way since the days of meth labs and illegal dumpers. Now, the big concern seems to be the muddy potholes. But even those may soon disappear.
Put on hold because of financial uncertainty, the plan to pave a 9.7-mile stretch of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road is back on track, bringing with it a better sense of identity and $20 million in federal funds to express it.
The funding is available from the Forest Highway Program, managed by the Federal Highway Administration’s Western Federal Lands division office, according to Doug Hecox, of the administration’s Public Affairs Office.
