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 was to move Michael Sweeney’s The Kiss to a new location.



Workers constructed a new earthen mound approximately 200 feet east from the sculpture's current location and then carefully transferred the sculpture to the new mound.



The entrance to the park was reconfigured with access to The Kiss. The sculpture is still visible from the Bog.
