520 closed this weekend for construction
September 21, 2012 · Updated 9:32 AM
A section of Highway 520, including the floating bridge across Lake Washington, will close this weekend in both directions due to ongoing construction. The closure will take place from 11 p.m., Friday, until 5 a.m. Monday between I-405 and Montlake Boulevard. Also closed will be 108th/112th Avenue Northeast between Northup Way and Northeast 24th Street, in Bellevue, to complete utility and stream work across all lanes of the road.
The Washington State Department of Transportation suggests that commuters do the following:
Delay discretionary trips, especially during high traffic periods between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Expect heavy congestion on alternate routes such as I-405, I-5 and I-90.
Use the I-90 and I-5 express lanes, which are adjusted to help ease congestion.
Know Before You Go: check the WSDOT website, call 511 for real-time travel information and plan for delays and added travel time.
