Traffic: Full weekend closure of SR 520 coming up

MEDINA - Next weekend the SR 520 floating bridge and highway will close as part of the bridge replacement and HOV program.

Crews will shut down the highway from Montlake Boulevard to I-405 starting at 11:00p.m. Friday, March 15. The bridge and road will remain closed until 5:00a.m. Monday, March 18.

Transportation officials say during the closure crews will be working to finish Eastside construction, including shifting the current eastbound lanes to the south to make room for construction on the north side of the highway.

Crews also plan to reopen the 92nd Avenue Northeast eastbound freeway transit stop on Monday.
