Update: an in-depth article on the subject is available on Biking Bis.

Due to some permit hangups, the scheduled construction along the south segment of the trail has been delayed, leaving the entire trail open for several months. From the announcement:

Trail users may enjoy the full East Lake Sammamish Trail for a few more months before the next phase of construction begins. Originally slated to begin construction this fall, final development of the South Sammamish Segment A (from Southeast 43rd Way to Southeast 33rd Street) is temporarily on hold as King County works to ensure the trail meets national safety standards.
