South Park Bridge - Construction project updates

Construction update #33


June 4, 2014

After an unprecedented effort that brought together community members, business partners, and government at the local, regional, state, and national levels, the new South Park Bridge is receiving its finishing touches. Designed to resemble its iconic predecessor, the new bridge was built to modern standards and should last a hundred years.

Please join us in South Park for the grand opening celebration on Sunday, June 29.

We’re expecting a large and enthusiastic crowd, plus local and national dignitaries, as we dedicate the new bridge and reopen an historic and critical transportation link.

The event will begin at noon. The official dedication ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. Festivities will include a parade across the bridge and a street party featuring music and other performances, as well as food and drink vendors. Participants will be able to walk across the bridge and tour its south tower.

More details about the bridge opening and celebration are available here. If you have questions, please contact DeAnna Martin, community relations planner for the King County Department of Transportation, at or 206-477-3835.
