Glass replacement for the Interurban Pedestrian Bridges at Aurora Avenue N and N 155th Street will begin this weekend. 

Pedestrians and bicyclists will still be able to access the bridges, but are urged to use caution in the work areas. 

Traffic revisions will be in place and delays may be possible. Please use alternate routes if you are able and if you must drive through the area, reduce your speed and drive cautiously to keep everyone safe.

Thank you in advance for your patience as the bridges are restored after being vandalized last year.

Vandalism, it is like nobody saw this coming! Glass, really? There is a reason why similar overpasses have encompassing metal fencing. Especially in the times we all live in now. While I wish we could have nice things like this that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Yet unfortunate, we never keep them that way without someone tagging or breaking it.

Way to go City! I predicted one year for a fix but only took 8 months! How much more would it cost $$$$$ to do hardening retrofit with steel panels when considering a cost over life time comparison analysis? Has King County Metro looked into hardening bus stop shelter panels? What data exists on life span expectancy of glass panels in big cities with high vandalism rates like we have now in Puget Sound Region.

I give the expensive replacement panels 18 months before some mentally disturbed addict destroys them again.
