People traveling eastbound State Route 18 through Covington and Maple Valley on Saturday or Sunday, May 30-31, should prepare for added travel time and a signed detour as Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews repair settling pavement near a bridge at Southeast 240th Street.

About 4 miles of eastbound SR 18 between SR 516 and 231st Street will close from 7 a.m. Saturday, May 30, to 7 p.m. Sunday, May 31.

During the closure, crews will repave the road connecting to the bridge to ensure drivers experience a smooth ride.

A signed detour will take drivers from eastbound SR 18 to SR 516 and SR 169 before reconnecting with SR 18 in Maple Valley.
