Late-summer push keeps SR 522 crews busy in Bothell

Drivers headed westbound on State Route 522 in Bothell Aug. 22 will see heavy construction activity near Woodinville Drive as crews put five bridge girders into place.

Crews can safely do this work without closing any lanes; however, you may experience delays as curious drivers gaze at the 128-foot-long girders being lifted by two 180-ton cranes.

Crews will shift gears next week as they excavate a portion of eastbound SR 522 near the Interstate-405 interchange. On Aug. 25, crews will close the left lane of eastbound SR 522. If you’re continuing eastbound on SR 522, stay left. Drivers headed toward I-405 southbound will continue to use the right lane.
