Aurora Bridge Repaving Starts This Weekend
If you have driven over the Aurora Avenue Bridge in the past few days, you’ve likely noticed the large bumps where part of the roadway has been scraped away. Repaving for the 88-year-old bridge starts this weekend and will be followed by 10 weekends of paving and partial lane closures. WSDOT is warning of long delays and asks that people avoid that area if possible. So let’s go ahead and add these weekends to our calendars right now, okay? WSDOT posted 7 times but says it may need 10 to get the job done. Weekend work will occur from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, the weekends of:
- May 31 – June 3
- June 14-17
- June 28-July 1
- July 12-15
- Aug. 9-12, 16-19 and 23-26
