Yes, yes: another weekend closure for 520
Be prepared for a now-almost-routine bridge closure this weekend. SR 520 will once again be out of service from 11:00 pm Friday night until 5:00 am on Monday. This weekend construction crews will be installing more than two million pounds of concrete girders for two lidded overpasses above the roadway. The photo above shows work at the Evergreen Point Road during an earlier road closure in November. Work will continue at this location as well as at 92nd Avenue NE. Wide, landscaped lids will ultimately exist at both locations, as well as at 84th Avenue NE.
Note that additional 520 closures are planned for the weekends of February 10-13 and 24-27. Additional information, including details of I-90 Express Lane schedule changes for this weekend, is available here.
