Construction Collapse injures Four city employees

Construction Collapse Injures Four, Causes Road Closures
Redmond, WA – Collapsed construction equipment on 164th Ave NE in Redmond caused four employee injuries and road closures. 
At 11:45 a.m. this morning the Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, and Woodinville Fire Departments responded to a construction site where a section of the formwork being used to support the floor during a concrete pour collapsed.

Four employees were treated at local hospitals for injuries. Fire crews and structural engineers entered the site to search for employees who may still be in the area but it appeared to be cleared.

All lanes of traffic are now open.
