Events mean bus changes this weekend (March 16-17)

In case you missed it, the SR 520 bridge WON’T close for construction this week (blame the weather). However, you can still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend with a parade or fun runs, and Metro wants riders to know where buses are rerouting.

SR 520 bridge NOT closing for weekend

Metro bus routes 255, 271 and 280 night owl, and Sound Transit 545 will keep their usual stops along the highway between I-405 and Montlake Boulevard.
