WSDOT gearing up for Montlake Phase construction later this year

As you may have noticed, construction on the West Approach Bridge North Project is nearly complete. The next major SR 520 construction is scheduled to begin later this year with the Montlake Phase of work. The Montlake Phase will include:
  • A new Montlake lid and interchange.
  • A new pedestrian and bicycle land bridge over SR 520.
  • A new West Approach Bridge South to carry eastbound traffic from Montlake to the floating bridge.
As we enter this construction lull over the summer, we are disconnecting our 24-hour construction hotline as of this Saturday, March 31.
Before we bring on a new contractor and begin Montlake Phase construction, crews may conduct intermittent nighttime work in the coming months, such as surveying near the Montlake interchange. We will be sure to provide an on-call contact for those as-needed nighttime events. Additionally, once Montlake Phase construction begins, the contractor will activate and staff a 24-hour construction hotline (with a new number).
You can always call our SR 520 information line (206-770-3554) during regular business hours (M-F, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.), or email us at
