Prepare for ramp closure at state Route 900
February 8, 2011
The westbound Interstate 90 on-ramp — for traffic headed south on state Route 900 — closes from 7 p.m. Feb. 10 to 7 a.m. Feb. 11 as crews construct a trail connector.
Crews poured concrete for the last piers in the trail connector at Interstate 90 and state Route 900 in mid-November. The project should be completed by late spring.
Plans call for the completed connector to feature a 12-foot-wide pedestrian bridge across the westbound interstate on-ramps, plus a 10-foot-wide pedestrian crossing on the existing state Route 900 overpass.
The city awarded the $4.4 million construction contract to C. A. Carey Corp. last June. The total project price tag is about $6 million.
The project relies on grants — including $400,000 from Sound Transit — to offset most of the project cost. The city contributed about $341,000 for the link.
