The new SR 520 floating bridge opened to eastbound traffic on Monday, April 25, and is now carrying vehicles in both directions. For information about SR 520 closures and construction activities, visit our SR 520 Orange Page.
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. You can watch the new bridge's April 11 maiden voyage of westbound traffic on YouTube.
What a party! A big thank you to the thousands who helped us celebrate the April 2 & 3 Grand Opening of the new SR 520 floating bridge. If you missed it, check out some photos of the celebration or watch this video of the ribbon cutting. You can also see some of the informational display boards that were posted on the bridge during the event!

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.
