Ronald Bog Park wetland mitigation to begin in July

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

As promised, Sound Transit will soon begin work to restore the wetlands at Ronald Bog Park and plant trees.

Ronald Bog Park will be closed as early as July 1st for Sound Transit to begin construction of wetland mitigation. Sound Transit is using an area of Ronald Bog Park for a wetland mitigation site to replace wetlands affected by light rail construction.

Enhancements to the park, including trail improvements, will be made as part of the project.

Ronald Bog Park will be closed to the public and wetland buffer areas will be fenced off indefinitely for wetland creation. 

The sculpture has already been moved to a new location in the park. (See previous article).

The work includes tree removal and excavation to create new low areas, then planting of trees, shrubs and groundcover plants.

Sound Transit will build a new ADA-accessible Trail featuring interpretive signs to enhance the enjoyment of the park.

They will also install fencing, signs, benches, bollards and habitat structures.

The work will take 18-20 weeks and is expected to be complete by next fall.

Work hours will be from 7am to 5pm.

Ronald Bog Park is located on N 175th St between I-5 and Meridian Ave N. -  2301 N 175th St, Shoreline 98133.
