Kiss sculpture being relocated within Ronald Bog park

Friday, January 18, 2019

Sound Transit is offsetting impacts to wetlands as a result of light rail construction in Shoreline by creating new wetlands at Ronald Bog Park on N 175th and I-5. (see previous article)

The first step in constructing the Ronald Bog Wetland Mitigation Site is to move Michael Sweeney’s The Kiss to a new location within the park.

Starting today, Sound Transit will construct a new earthen mound approximately 200 feet east from the sculpture's current location and then carefully transfer the sculpture to the new mound.

Construction of the wetland mitigation site is expected to begin in summer 2019.

A few parking stalls will be temporarily occupied for construction use. A temporary road access will be installed for equipment access to work site.

The work area will be marked and fenced off from public access. Work will occur from 7am - 4pm, Monday – Friday and take approximately five weeks to complete.
