Highway closures in Bellevue to require extra attention on drivers’ part


With sunny skies and Mariners home games this weekend, drivers will need to plan ahead for road construction SR 520 in Bellevue.

Crews in Bellevue are clos to finishing work on SR 520. This weekend’s work is the second to last weekend closure for major bridge panel replacement work. Starting Friday night, crews will close two of four lanes on westbound SR 520 from 124th Avenue Northeast to I-405, as well as the ramp from westbound SR 520 to northbound I-405. Sixteen Washington companies are working on this $9 million project, which helps sustain an estimated 94 jobs.
