Sure. But I was looking forward to riding that stretch of it, and when I reached the sign it gave no indication of how much of it was closed.
The map in the link above gives a route to detour via the Interurban, but it seems unnecessarily long, as the closed section appears to only be S. 180th to S. 200th (thanks geronimo2000!). I'll have to try it soon, but I don't see why you couldn't just detour over to the Interurban at 180th and then back over to the GRT at 196th (southbound). Maybe I'm missing something, but Google maps shows both those roads as being "bike friendly" to a some degree, and the trail remains on the east side of the river through there.
I'm glad to learn how small the closure actually is, especially since most of my favorite portion of it is still open. I was really disappointed, because I thought it was a large portion of the trail like before when the were working on it.
My concern now is that they'll expand the amount that is closed, hopefully it will only remain this small portion of it.
