The State Route 520 bridge and highway will close this weekend so contractors for the state Department of Transportation can complete demolition of the south abutment of the Evergreen Point Road overpass, set girders for the 84th Avenue Northeast lid and complete other time-sensitive construction activities.
The bridge, highway and ramps will be closed in both directions between Interstate 405 and Montlake Boulevard in Seattle from 11 p.m., Friday, to 5 a.m., Monday.
Thousands of vehicles travel across 520 on a typical weekend; drivers are advised to take alternate routes and plan for added travel time and delays. Carpools and transit are also suggested.
This work is part of the $306 million SR 520 Eastside Transit and HOV Project that will improve safety, access and reliability in the corridor when complete in 2013.
