State Route 520 opened at 10 a.m. today

State Route 520 opened in both directions about 10 this morning after being closed since 11 p.m. on Friday

The highway had been closed westbound so crews could pour the first concrete for the roadway deck of the new West Connection Bridge, which will link a new 520 floating bridge with the existing highway on the western shore of Lake Washington, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The highway had been scheduled to be closed until early tomorrow morning, but conditions were right and the work was completed early.
