"The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) announced its design and construction partner to replace Seattle’s Portage Bay Bridge in a $1.4 billion project.

Skanska has been selected to design and build two new parallel bridges as part of the final improvements to the SR 520 corridor.

The bridge is the final stretch of SR 520 that connects Montlake to Interstate 5 over Portage Bay. The project will also extend the bicycle and pedestrian trail. It will also create a three-acre recreational landscape lid over SR 520 between 10th Avenue East and Delmar Drive East in north Capitol Hill".

The HOV lanes, bike lane, and lid will all be game changers.

I've biked in that direction many times and it's not terribly direct currently. It's also unsafe near Montlake (also addressed by the current phase). This will make it far simpler, and give people a safer option away from streets.
