520 Eastbound closed tonight
It's hard to believe that we could have missed another closure of the 520 floating bridge, but we did. Last night the westbound lanes were closed during the night and here's your notice, in case you missed other press coverage, that the eastbound lanes will be closed tonight, beginning at 11 pm and extending until 9 am tomorrow.
Although there are no further eastbound lane closures planned through September, there are three more westbound lane closures that will take place: August 29/30 (11 pm until 5 am), September 6/7 (11 pm until 5 pm), and September 14/15 (9 pm until 9 am).
There are multiple construction-related reasons for the planned closures, including pouring concrete for the new bridge columns on the Westside and shifting traffic onto new highway lanes on the Eastside near Bellevue. The eastbound closure this evening covers the roadway between the Montlake exit and I-405.
