SR 520 Evergreen Point Floating Bridge

The new Evergreen Point Floating Bridge crossing Lake Washington near Seattle features 7,710 feet of floating span and is wider, taller and sturdier than the aging floating bridge it replaced. The bridge and landings are a key component of the ongoing SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program making corridor improvements between I-5 in Seattle and I-405 in Bellevue, Washington.
