Replacement of the 240th Street SE Bridge, closed since it was found to be unsafe last fall, is the subject of an upcoming open house.
The meeting is scheduled for 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2 at the Seattle Times North Creek Facility, A.J. Blethen Room, 19200 120th Ave. NE, Bothell.
The bridge, which spans North Creek near the county line just east of I-405, was originally scheduled for replacement in 2012. Since the closure, according to the city, it’s been working to accelerate the replacement schedule.
The cost of replacement is expected to be covered by city funds and a federal grant.
When the bridge was inspected last fall, the timber piles were found to be deteriorated to the point where it is longer safe to drive over the bridge. The bridge has been closed ever since.
The construction schedule and the effects on traffic will be discussed at the open house.
