SR 520 Eastside, Jan. 2012 closure
Major construction kicked back into high gear on SR 520 the weekend of Jan. 13 to 16. All lanes of the highway were closed so crews could move more than two million pounds of massive concrete girders for new lidded overpasses above the highway at 92nd Avenue Northeast and Evergreen Point Road.

The project widens SR 520 from four to six lanes from Medina to Bellevue and includes rebuilding interchanges, installing fish-friendly culverts, and building highway lids and transit stops in the center of the highway. WSDOT awarded the $306 million design-build contract to Eastside Corridor Constructors (ECC), a joint venture of Granite Construction Company and PCL Construction Services.
