BELLEVUE, Wash. SR 520 will be closed again from Bellevue to Montlake next weekend.

The road will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday, March 9, through 5 a.m. Monday, March 12, to demolish the existing Evergreen Point Road overpass.

Crews will close the highway in both directions of the SR 520 floating bridge and highway and all ramps between Montlake Boulevard and I-405.

All ramps and the mainline will be open by 5 a.m. Monday.

The Eastside Transit and HOV Project will widen SR 520 to six lanes from Medina to Bellevue. The project includes rebuilding interchanges, building highway lids and transit stops in the center of the highway and installing fish-passable culverts.

WSDOT awarded the $306 million design-build contract to Eastside Corridor Constructors, a joint venture of Granite Construction Company and PCL Construction Services.

Complete SR 520 highway construction closures are limited during the next two years to work on major structures that cross the highway. The completed corridor from Medina to Bellevue is scheduled to open to traffic in December 2013.\
