This project replaces the crumbling asphalt with new concrete slabs where the road meets the concrete overpasses. Other parts of the route will be repaved to extend the life of the road.
Construction will occur between I-405 in Bellevue and West Lake Sammamish Parkway in Redmond. New concrete sections will be built between March and May 2009 near five overpass bridges. The mainline highway will be repaved in summer 2009.
Weekend closures are planned for up to eight weekends in March and April, and possibly May. One lane will remain open on westbound or eastbound SR 520 between I-405 and West Lake Sammamish Parkway.
Nighttime Lane Closures
Nighttime lane closures are planned during the summer paving months, roughly May through August 2009. One lane will remain open to traffic during construction.
