NEW — 6 a.m. July 27, 2015
Drivers should prepare for what the city called short, recurrent lane closures at two Front Street intersections July 28.
Starting as early as 5 a.m., crews intermittently will close lanes at the intersections of Front Street and Sunset Way, along with Front Street North and Northwest Dogwood Street, to accommodate tractor-trailers carrying 95-foot bridge girders.
The girders will be used in the new bridge on Northwest Dogwood Street.

A Recology CleanScapes truck hit the side of the eastbound Interstate 90 overpass over Front Street North on March 13.
The company hauls trash in parts of Issaquah.
The lift that slides a trash bin off the truck was in the up position, and it tore a large hole in the bridge girders. Crumbled concrete was strewn about and a large hole was gouged in the pavement from the overhead force that stopped the truck.
That force was so great that it bent the cab of the truck all the way forward and it slammed into the pavement.
