SR 520 Eastside July 2012 Closure
The annual WSDOT SR 520 bridge maintenance closure the weekend of July 13–16, 2012 allowed crews to tackle an array of jobs, from setting concrete panels for a new lidded overpass to preparing the floating bridge to weather another storm season. The closure also set the stage for some guided tours of the project, where members of the public were given a special behind-the-scenes look into the tremendous progress that’s been made since construction started over a year ago.

The SR 520 Eastside Transit and HOV Project is widening 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. In 2010, WSDOT awarded the $306 million design-build contract to Eastside Corridor Constructors, a joint venture of Granite Construction Company and PCL Construction Services.
