I-90 - Front Street Bridge Girder Replacement - Complete August 2016

WSDOT contractor crews replaced a damaged 114-foot bridge girder on the eastbound I-90 Front Street overpass in Issaquah.

The girder was damaged when an over-height garbage truck collided with the overpass in March 2015.


How you benefit

Improves safety
While the damaged bridge girder did not pose a risk to drivers, the overpass would eventually deteriorate to a state where it would be unsafe for vehicles to go on or under the bridge.

Replacing the damaged bridge girder returned the overpass to its original strength and eliminated a visual distraction to drivers in Issaquah.


Partnerships & cooperation
WSDOT coordinated the road closure schedule and worked closely with the city of Issaquah.


Pre-Existing Funds (PEF): $1,002,000
Total: $1,002,000
