The April 25 opening of eastbound lanes on the new floating bridge, shown at right, is a crowning achievement for the SR 520 construction program. This time-lapse video shows the final weekend of construction to switch eastbound traffic onto the new bridge. You also can watch the April 11 maiden voyage of westbound traffic on the new bridge.
The new floating bridge's bicycle and pedestrian path will open in late May/early June as an out-and-back trail from Medina. The path will reach Seattle when the West Approach Bridge North is completed in summer 2017. Check out our Bicycle and Pedestrian Connections webpage for more information about riding and walking the SR 520 corridor.
The SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program is enhancing public safety and mobility by replacing the highway's aging, vulnerable bridges and making significant transit and roadway improvements throughout the corridor. The construction program's planned improvements extend from I-5 in Seattle to I-405 in Bellevue.
