SR 520 - 108th Ave. NE to West Lake Sammamish Parkway - Paving - Completed summer 2014

Overview
Contractor crews working for WSDOT repaved three miles of State Route 520 between 108th Avenue Northeast and West Lake Sammamish Parkway during the summer of 2014.

How you benefit

Improves safety
By removing the existing top layer of pavement and repairing the roadbed underneath as needed, drivers have a smoother road and they are less likely to veer to avoid large cracks, potholes or standing water.

Economic incentive
Repaving these areas of SR 520 extends the useful life of the highway, preserves critical infrastructure, reduces annual maintenance costs and reduces the risk of costly and inconvenient emergency repairs.

Partnerships & cooperation
WSDOT worked closely with the City of Bellevue and nearby road construction projects to coordinate the paving work.
