Background:

The West Sammamish River Bridge carries southbound traffic over the Sammamish River on 68th Ave NE. The bridge was constructed in the 1930s and is nearing the end of its life. In March of 2014, Council-approved weight restrictions on the 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 Description:

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.

 

Funding:

The project is currently estimated to cost $35.8 million dollars. The project is funded by the FHWA’s Highway Bridge Programs for $12M, Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) funding for $6.9M, federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds of $1.6M and the Connecting Washington State fund for $8M. Local Kenmore funds, Northshore Utility District and other utilities within the project limits will also contribute to the project funding.
