6/25 Saturday 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., the loop ramp from Wenatchee Avenue, and two of the three eastbound lanes plus the bridge pedestrian path will be closed. Westbound drivers will continue to have two lanes but pedestrians will be directed to the Loop Trail Pipeline Bridge.

6/26 Sunday 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., both westbound lanes will close as will the 5th St. NE access to the bridge from the mall. There will be stop signs at the ramp from southbound Sunset Hwy. and at the northbound Sunset Hwy. lane (from Grant Rd.) so vehicles on both can alternately access the middle lane of the bridge. All the eastbound traffic will be funneled into the eastbound outside lane. Eastbound lane two will be closed as a buffer between the two single lanes of west and eastbound traffic.

You are encouraged to use the north end Odabashian Bridge instead.
