The new SR 520 Floating Bridge and Landings project has been underway since early 2012, and parts of it is really for final commissioning and use by the general public. Bryan, Gary and I went to the official opening of the new State Route 520 Floating Bridge today. The new bridge has been built alongside the old (which will be dismantled and recycled). The final work on the ‘approaches’ to the bridge (the on-ramps and off-ramps) will continue, but vehicles (and pedestrians and cyclists) will be able to start to use the new bridge just a little later in April. The west-bound lanes will open first, with the east-bound lanes to follow two weeks later.
