The new SR 520 floating bridge won a prestigious national award on Nov. 3 as the country's top design engineering project of 2016. In addition, WSDOT received a Vision 2040 Award in October from the Puget Sound Regional Council for completion of the new SR 520 floating bridge.

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.
