Westbound SR 520 to close July 28-31

The following is a release from the Washington State Department of Transportation:

Anyone who wishes to reach Seattle via State Route 520 this week should prepare for multiple overnight closures of the highway’s westbound lanes across Lake Washington.

July 28-31

· Starting tonight and repeated Tuesday and Wednesday nights, both westbound lanes of SR 520 will close from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. between 92nd Avenue Northeast and Montlake Boulevard.

· Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will use the lane closures to continue pouring concrete for the deck of the new West Connection Bridge.

WSDOT posts information about construction closures and nighttime work on the SR 520 Orange Page, the interactive construction and driver planning tool for the SR 520 program. The SR 520 website also provides information on the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program.
