Yesler Bridge Rehabilitation Project: Placement of new bridge girders

Last week the placement of new girders across 4th Ave S was successfully completed. In the next few months the project will work to rehabilitate north and south columns, cladding, capitals, corbels and pedestrian railings.

Crews recently opened the sidwalk on the west side of 4th Ave S between S Washington and Jefferson Streets. Crews continue work to widen the bridge footings, and installation of a large electrical utility vault next to the eastern bridge abutment. The sidewalk on the east side of 4th Ave S will be closed until late April. Thank you for your patience as we continue construction activities.

The Yesler Way Bridge Rehabilitation Project, which will improve safety and reliability while preserving the bridge’s historical elements, will continue through fall of 2017. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the project further, please contact Yesler­Bridge@seattle.gov or 206-684-8684. To learn more about the project, visit the project website.
