SE 248th closed east of Witte Road Roundabout

Early this morning a vehicle struck a power pole on SE 248th. The road is closed while PSE crews respond an repair the pole.

This does not affect entry into the Community Center or Witte Road traffic.  However, it does impede travel to the Lake Wilderness Lodge and Arboretum from Witte on SE 248th. The Lake Wilderness Lodge and Arboretum closed until further notice.

ALTERNATE ROUTE: If you have to travel through this area, please use the south Lake Wilderness emergency access gate through Kate’s Ridge. Please note this is an emergency alternate route and is not available for general travel every day. 

At this time, we do not have an estimated time of re-opening. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide an update as we information. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. 

Remember to avoid down power lines.  Assume that all lines are charged even if you do not see sparks.
