Contractor crews have been hard at work completing a major milestone, pouring the new bridge deck. Earlier this week, the east sidewalk of 4th Ave S was reopened, while the west sidewalk was closed to resume construction on the west bridge abutment.
With summer just around the corner a large portion of the construction is expected to be completed. Please expect sidewalk closures to continue for the remainder of May and to see closures along 4th Ave S between now and the anticipated opening of the completed bridge this coming fall.
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.
