The City of Lake Forest Park has been closely monitoring the situation regarding demolition of the old SR 520 bridge in the north Lake Washington area.

The original demolition plan included “rubblization” of the bridge in Kenmore after it had arrived in Kenmore by barge.

On May 23, 2016 the City of Kenmore took action on a settlement agreement with Kiewit/ General/ Manson, Lakepointe Inc. and Pioneer Towing, Co. to prevent the demolition of the old SR 520 bridge in Kenmore.

The approved settlement agreement does allow the contractor to transport broken down bridge material through Kenmore but it does not allow recycling or rubblization of the material to occur in the City. It will immediately be loaded into trucks and hauled away.

Rubblization of the old SR 520 bridge material will not occur in the Kenmore or Lake Forest Park. A WSDOT representative assured LFP City staff by phone that the demolition will be done in the vicinity of the SR 520 bridge.
