Busy weekend ahead for Seattle area drivers

Where to begin… hmm… well how about I just tell you this: it’s going to be a busy weekend of action-packed sporting events and roadwork in the Seattle area! And that means you need to be ready for traffic delays no matter where you are headed. But relax, information is power and I’ve listed the details below for you. Best advice? Leave early as we expect traffic to begin building around 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday. We’ve also adjusted the I-5 and I-90 express lanes to help ease traffic. We also recommend you try to combine your trips, ride with a pal or take transit.

I-5 Seattle

  • Two lanes of northbound I-5 between SR 520 and the north end of the Ship Canal Bridge will be closed from 5 to 10 a.m. both Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31, for bridge deck repair work.
  • NOISY WORK – The work is unavoidably noisy as crews must use jackhammers and other loud equipment. Residents who live near the I-5 Ship Canal Bridge should expect to begin hearing the maintenance work as early as 5 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
  • To help ease traffic the I-5 express lanes will operate northbound from 8 to 10 a.m. each day. They will switch southbound from about 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The express lanes will open again northbound at 1:45 p.m. and remain northbound until 11 p.m.

SR 99 Des Moines

  • Northbound SR 99 between SR 516 and South 224th Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 30. The closure will allow the city of Des Moines to remove a crane. Drivers will follow a signed detour.

SR 99 Seattle

  • The two right lanes of northbound SR 99 at the 1st Avenue South Bridge will be closed from 6 to 11 a.m. Sunday, May 31, for bridge maintenance work.
