Seattle, WA (November
2, 2016) – Built by Eastside Corridor Constructors, a joint venture between PCL
Civil Constructors, Inc. and Granite Construction, the SR 520 Eastside Transit and HOV project was named one of the Top
10 Roads by Roads and Bridges magazine.
The Top 10 Roads list recognizes the best roads in the United States, taking
into account the project’s challenges, impact to region, and scope of work.
The project, which ranked #7 on the list, widened 2.5 miles of
roadway along the SR 520 corridor, which connects Seattle and Eastside
communities like Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond. The expansion, which was
necessary to accommodate the region’s population boom, included expanding the HOV lanes, improving
transit stops, constructing direct access interchanges for transit and HOV, and
building three landscaped freeway bridge structures, called lids. These
improvements are expected to provide greater mobility for all SR 520 travelers,
including drivers, transit commuters, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
