NSC - Francis Avenue Improvements - Complete December 2014

WSDOT  replaced the existing, 160-foot long, Francis Avenue Bridge with a 455-foot long structure. In addition, signal system and configuration changes were made at  the Market Street and Freya Street intersection.

The existing bridge crossed over the BNSF Railway tracks. The new structure provides room for the same tracks and the future new freeway to pass under Francis Avenue.
