SEATAC – A new, wider and longer South 216th Street bridge across Interstate 5 in SeaTac will open to both directions of traffic on Wednesday, June 5.

Construction crews working on the Washington State Department of Transportation’s State Route 509 Completion Project are nearly done building the northern portion of the bridge. The southern side of the bridge opened to westbound traffic on South 216th Street in December 2023, while eastbound traffic used a detour to cross I-5.
