Seattle – Buildings Construction

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.

This is the second award won by this project, with the first being the Excellence in Concrete Construction Award from the Washington Aggregates and Concrete Association.  

The SR 520 Eastside Transit and HOV project will be featured in the November issue of Roads and Bridges magazine.
