Aurora Bridge closure on Sunday

August 20th, 2010 · Comments

For the second Sunday in a row, Washington State Department of Transportation crews will close some lanes on the Aurora Avenue bridge to work on the suicide prevention fence. So if you’re planning to travel downtown on Sunday, plan for delays or take an alternate route.

Crews will work on the east side of the bridge, closing two northbound lanes.

Access to northbound SR 99 from Halladay near Canlis will be open. Lane closures will be from 6 a.m. to midnight again, with the noisy work beginning as early as 7 p.m. and continuing until 11 p.m. Since they will be on the east side of the bridge, the sound will likely travel further into Lake Union this time.

WSDOT is posting some pretty scenic photos of crews working. Work will continue each Sunday through Sept. 5.
