Help us #RateThePlate

We’ve heard feedback from cyclists regarding the expansion joint cover plates on the SR 520 Trail. In response, we’ve designed a replacement plate and installed a test plate on the eastern end of the SR 520 Bridge. When you have a chance, please go for a ride over the plate and give us your feedback. You’ll find details about how to provide feedback on signs by the plate on the trail. You can read more about the plates in our latest blog. Thanks!

We’d like your feedback on our new Construction Corner webpages

We’ve created a new set of webpages that are designed to keep you up to speed on our upcoming SR 520 reconstruction activities, how they might affect your travel or your neighborhood, and what we’re doing to minimize the effects of our work. We call these new webpages the SR 520 Construction Corner. We’d love to have you take a test drive on the Construction Corner, and take a brief survey to let us know what you think, before the webpages go live to the general public. It should take only a few minutes of your time. A big thanks, in advance, for your help! We'll roll out the final Construction Corner site prior to Montlake Project construction in 2019.

New construction schedule announced for SR 520’s Rest of the West improvements

We have a new, updated schedule for implementing the $1.6 billion of remaining SR 520 corridor improvements funded by the Legislature’s 2015 Connecting Washington transportation legislation. We are moving ahead on several key fronts that will allow us to enhance public safety and mobility by replacing aging and vulnerable SR 520 corridor structures. We call this area west of the new floating bridge the “Rest of the West.” The work kicks off in early 2019 with the Montlake Project, followed by construction of a new transit/HOV connection between SR 520 and Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Even more improvements come later. Learn more about the phased projects in this news release or check the project links on our Rest of the West webpage.

Program Overview

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.
