49th Ave N & Queen Ave N Bridge Improvement Projects
These are bridge improvement projects. Improvements include performing concrete deck repairs, milling and placing a low slump overlay on the bridge deck, and replacing the approach panels and the expansion joints. Additional pavement on both ends of Queen Ave N bridge will be milled and overlaid.
The 49th Ave N bridge was constructed in 1963 and the Queen Ave N bridge was constructed in 1962. The items being replaced have reached the end of their useful life, and these improvements will extend their useful life for many years.
The project is located on 49th Ave N at Humboldt, and Queen Ave N between 52nd Ave N and Penn Ave N. Both are over Shingle Creek.
Construction Start Date:
Work will begin the week of July 25, 2016.
The work on both bridges will be done simultaneously. Each bridge will be open upon completion.
Length of Construction:
Approximately five weeks.
The bridges will be closed to through-traffic during these work activities.
September 28, 2016: The projects are complete.
