A 28-foot-long section of concrete wall along Amazon Creek, just north of 24th Avenue, has collapsed into the creek, forcing city officials to close a section of the Amazon shared-use path today and Tuesday in order to make repairs.


The path is being closed during daytime hours between 19th and 24th avenues. The 50-year-old wall section collapsed Saturday after several days of heavy rain, officials said.

There are no public safety issues associated with the collapse, officials said.

The city has hired a private firm to make repairs. City engineers are now trying to learn whether the remaining concrete wall is structurally stable, officials said.
