WSDOT Seeking Public Input On SR520 Tomorrow Evening

Congested SR 520 floating bridge during the morning commute.

The Washington State Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting tomorrow from 4-7pm at at the Museum of History and Industry (2700 24th Avenue East).

WSDOT is interested in continuing to seek community feedback on design features of SR520 improvements, community connections, lids and bridge structures throughout the project area, the invite says that went out to neighbors.

There will be short presentations at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. discussing common themes and requests for information heard at the last meeting, including initial design concepts from Interstate 5 to the west end of the floating bridge, that incorporate public comments received at the October meeting.

"Additional public input will help develop the sustainable urban design elements and enhance community connections, highway lids and bridge structures along SR 520 from I-5 to the west end of the floating bridge," the information says.

This meeting is the second in WSDOT’s Seattle Community Design Process, which focuses on SR 520 improvements at the I-5 interchange, Portage Bay Bridge, Montlake interchange and replacement of the west approach to the floating bridge.

Information about the Seattle Community Design Process can be found here.  And here are details about the new SR 520.
