Crews reopen the 520 Bridge Trail

After being closed for two weeks for construction, the 520 Bridge Trail reopened on schedule Friday.

The trail still has some temporary pavement and fencing, and there is still work to do before the walk/bike overpass is complete. But after many years of construction, the end is in sight. WSDOT’s 520 project website still lists 2024 as the completion date for all the Montlake area work. Accessing the Arboretum and the Lake Washington Loop bike route will be much easier. Aside from the immediate area, all this has significant implications for bike access across the city and region.

But for now, it’s just nice to be able to bike across the lake again without detouring all the way to I-90. And I wasn’t the only one who felt this way this afternoon. There were already a bunch of people biking across the lake while I was there. I don’t know how so many people already heard the news it was open. Perhaps they all heard the latest song from WSDOT:
