The City of Tukwila will be performing repairs to the 196th/200th Street Bridge over the Green River, starting Oct. 7, 2019, and continuing to Dec. 2, 2019.

This work will require full road closure.

Here’s more from the city:

Construction of the 196th/200th Street Bridge Repair Project consists of street improvements within the right-of-way of S 200th Street near the Green River, including the removal and replacement of the concrete approach and other associated structures at the 196th/200th Street Bridge on the west side of the river near the boundary between the City of Tukwila and the City of Kent.


This work is expected to have a two to three month active construction schedule with the roadway closed to vehicular traffic for approximately 8 weeks beginning in early October.  Pedestrians and bike traffic will be accommodated through the work zone for the majority of the work, however this will not always be possible and there will be detour routes posted for each phase of the project.

Please expect delays on the surface streets nearest the project, provide appropriate travel information to anyone traveling to or from businesses near the project during construction and follow appropriate detours to reach your destination.

We appreciate your patience as we complete this critical infrastructure repair and we will reopen the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so.
