Sound Transit’s contractor working on the new pedestrian bridge between the UW Station and the Triangle Parking Garage will partially close Montlake Blvd on weekends and some weeknights through the end of September. During these closures, expect the right-side northbound lane and sidewalk, as well as the southbound transit lane to be closed to traffic.

The next closure is this Saturday from 5am to 5pm, when crews will relocate Metro trolley lines and install new light poles.

The pedestrian bridge construction is expected to last until May of 2013, with station construction continuing until 2014. Light rail is expected to be operational by late 2016.
