SEATTLE – Construction of the State Route 520 West Approach Bridge North Project is kicking off in Seattle. Washington State Department of Transportation staff will be on-hand to answer questions and share the latest construction information about the project at an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2 at the Montlake Community Center.

The new West Approach Bridge North will have solid columns and be built to modern seismic standards. The 1.2-mile-long structure will connect the new SR 520 floating bridge’s three westbound lanes, including a dedicated transit/HOV lane and shoulders, to the Montlake Boulevard interchange in Seattle.

The structure will also extend a new 14-foot-wide, cross-lake bicycle/pedestrian path from the Eastside to the Montlake neighborhood and the University of Washington. You can learn more about the project by watching our video.
