As Sound Transit contractors continue making good prgress to extend the future 2 Link into downtown Redmond, big changes are coming for drivers accessing westbound State Route 520.
Beginning on April 15, 2022, crews will be closing the on-ramp to westbound 520 from Redmond Way for 4 months in order to build a new freeway on-ramp.
This work is happening so that crews can raise the westbound SR 520 on-ramp over the future light rail line that will travel at ground level, underneath the on-ramp.
Here is the detour route for drivers accessing 520 from Redmond Way.
And here is the detour route to westbound 520 from NE 76th Street or NE Union Hill Road.
The Downtown Redmond Link Extension adds two new light rail stations in 2024 in southeast Redmond - serving Marymoor Village near Marymoor Park - and in the downtown residential and retail core.
These two stations open a year after completion of East Link to Redmond Technology Station, opening in 2023.
