Useful info from WSDOT. Construction closures are aggravating, but getting the bridge done more quickly saves money and gets the whole project done faster.
Construction of the new West Connection Bridge is in full swing so please plan ahead for weekly closures of westbound SR 520. Crews will close all westbound lanes from 92nd Avenue NE to Montlake Boulevard beginning 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday each week from Sept. 19 through Oct. 17. Before and after each full closure, a single westbound lane will be closed from 9-11 p.m. and from 5-6 a.m. During the closures crews will build foundations and columns on Lake Washington, just to the north of SR 520. Dates are subject to change. Check the new SR 520 Orange Page for updates.
