It’s going to be another weekend filled with construction noise for those living around the Renton airport, as work continues in the north end.

Crews will once again work this weekend to finish foundations for a new, temporary bridge prior to the closing of the in-water work (fish) window.

Boeing is replacing the bridge at the site used to bring completed 737s from the plant to the airport.

Eight more foundation piles will be installed as well as support piles for demolition of the existing bridge. Work is set to begin Friday night from 7 to 10 p.m. with vibration driving of piles.

But noise will be most significant between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday while impact driving occurs.

Building the new bridge is a three-year project and expected to be completed in 2015.
