The West Approach Bridge North will have solid columns and be built to modern seismic standards. The 1.2-mile-long structure will connect the new floating bridge’s three westbound lanes, including a dedicated transit/HOV lane and shoulders, to the Montlake interchange in Seattle. WABN will also extend a new 14-foot-wide regional bicycle/pedestrian path from the Eastside and floating bridge to Montlake and the University of Washington. The new bridge is scheduled to open to traffic in summer 2017.
For more information about the WABN design and how it will connect with the new floating bridge view the WABN folio online. You can also watch our video which highlights the benefits of the completed project to the SR 520 corridor and the entire region.
Thank you in advance for your patience during construction. We look forward to seeing you at the Oct. 2 open house.
