Project Details

Project Type:
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.

Project Limits:
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.

Traffic Impact:
The bridges will be closed to through-traffic during these work activities.
