The next weekend closure of the 520 Bridge is 11pm Friday, July 13th until 5am Monday, July 16th. During the bridge closure WSDOT will offer public tours of the eastside floating bridge and lid construction:
We’re doing something special during that weekend’s closure as a thank you to local residents and commuters. We’re opening up sections of the SR 520 bridge and highway for special guided tours beginning at 11 and 11:30 a.m., Saturday, July 14.
We hope you can join Eastside and SR 520 Floating Bridge and Landings project staff for a special behind-the-scenes bus tour of the Eastside lids and the floating bridge under construction. You’ll get a chance to walk around the new lids, view the floating bridge construction, and get a better sense of just what the contractors are building.
If you’re interested in attending, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place on the tour. Let us know if you prefer the 11 or 11:30 a.m. tour and we will try to accommodate your request. Registration is limited, on a first-come, first-serve basis, and must be received by July 11.
