Lower Mission bridge temporarily closed for construction

The Lakeshore Bridge over Bellevue Creek one-way traffic only while upgrades are being completed

Lakeshore Road will be closed for construction starting Monday (July 26).

Pedestrians will be allowed both southbound and northbound on the existing pedestrian bridge but cyclists should be using the detours in place.
