Suspended work platform installation under East Channel Bridge

Beginning as early as Feb. 16, Sound Transit's contractor, Kiewit-Hoffman, will begin installing a work platform beneath the East Channel Bridge. The work platform, or "Quick Deck," will be suspended below the East Channel Bridge as a work space for crews who will begin installing steel stiffeners to the bridge's box girders. This work will reduce the structures' vulnerability in a seismic event and prepare the East Channel Bridge for future East Link construction and operation. The work platform will be visible from Enatai Beach Park and the surrounding area.

Enatai Park-and-Ride one-day closure

The Enatai Park-and-Ride will be closed Friday, Feb. 23rd for maintenance.

During the closure, commuters are encouraged to use a recently opened park-and-ride located at Bellevue Church of Christ off Southeast 11th. The Bellevue Church of Christ Park-and-Ride, located at 1212 104th Ave. SE is served by the same routes as the Enatai Lot; it's just one stop north of the Enatai Lot. Find more information about park-and-ride options during East Link construction on the East Link Park-and-Ride page.
