UPDATE: WSDOT announced this morning that the trail work has been cancelled. So the bridge trail will be open this weekend, though sections may be skinnier than usual.

The 520 Bridge Trail will be closed again this weekend, and this time stretches of Montlake Blvd. and Lake Washington Blvd. will be closed as well along with the trail and all the Montlake 520 ramps. The closures are scheduled to begin 10 p.m. Friday (Dec. 8) and reopen 5 a.m. Monday (Dec. 11).

People biking and walking along Montlake Blvd. “will be detoured through the area.” But expect some serious traffic issues on other routes like Boyer Ave E.

Though through-lanes on SR 520 will be open, the trail will be closed while crews “continue installation of irrigation and electrical systems near the new bike and pedestrian bridge we’re building over SR 520 in Montlake,” according to a WSDOT construction alert email.

More details on the closure from WSDOT:

Crews will install roadway paving and utilties. Montlake Boulevard will close in both directions between East Roanoke Street and East Hamlin Street from 10 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8 to 5 a.m. on Monday, Dec.11. All associated SR 520 on and off-ramps to Montlake will be closed. Pedestians and bicyclists will be detoured through the area.

Additionally, Lake Washington Blvd. between Montlake Boulevard and East Foster Island will be local access only.
