SR 520 to close Sept. 13 to 15 for completion of new HOV lanes
BELLEVUE – Construction crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation’s State Route 520 Eastside Transit and HOV Project will be hard at work over the weekend as they put the final touches on new high-occupancy vehicle lanes between Bellevue and Medina. Beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, all SR 520 lanes across Lake Washington will be >shut down in both directions between Interstate 405 and Montlake Boulevard for striping of the new lanes and other work.
“We’re almost done with more than three years of work on the Eastside” said project engineer Mark Allison. “We’ve already opened two new transit stops, paved six new mainline lanes, and on Monday, the HOV lanes will open.”
