It could be a noisy evening near the Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT), Washington

Work resumes tonight, Friday on the construction of a new, temporary bridge between Boeing and the Renton Municipal Airport and neighbors around the airport may notice a bit of noise.

According to the project's Construction Manager Mark Garrido, there will be some "minor pile driving" at the site to sink in the piles for the temporary bridge.

The will be work done tonight, Saturday and possibly Monday, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Work on the project is limited to daylight hours and therefore must be completed by 10 p.m.

The piles are part of a temporary bridge that will is to be located parallel to the current bridge on the south side and stay in place as the current bridge is demolished and rebuilt.

The current plan, which has been submitted to the city for approval, calls for the majority of the pile driving to be done over two weekends this summer. The airport will be shut down during those days to allow for the pile driving during the day instead of at night.

Garrido said the first weekend is tentatively scheduled for July 20, with the second still to be scheduled.

According to Garrido, the underwater work can only be done in a three-month fish window, which means they hope to complete the temporary bridge and begin the main work this season with the goal of finishing during next year's fish window.

"We're working very hard to stay within the city's sound ordinance and appreciate the citizens' good will and tolerance," Garrido said.
