Current Status

  • Design: Completed
  • Construction: Started April 2020 and projected to last through Fall 2022

The West Sammamish River Bridge carries southbound traffic over the Sammamish River on 68th Ave NE. The west bridge was constructed in the 1930s and is nearing the end of its life. In March of 2014, Council-approved weight restrictions on this southbound bridge went into effect and will continue until bridge construction is complete. The City of Kenmore continues to monitor the condition of the bridge.

Project Overview

The project will replace the existing west bridge (southbound travel lanes) with a new structure. Work will also involve replacing the approaches to the bridge between NE 170th St and NE 175th St.
