KENMORE, Wash. -- Drivers who use the Sammamish River Bridge in Kenmore have to find alternate ways to get across the water after the road failed during a construction project.
Crews were replacing a sewer main as part of the bridge replacement project in the southbound lanes along 68th Ave. NE when the road gave way, according to Kenmore city officials.
As a precaution, both north- and southbound lanes have been closed between 170th and 175th streets until the road can be repaired. Pedestrians and cyclists can still cross on the northbound side of the bridge.
The closure has the Northshore School District warning parents and students that middle and elementary school buses could be delayed due to traffic issues.
There is no estimate when the bridge will reopen.
