I-90 to close Thursday night
May 18, 2010
Issaquah- and Seattle-bound drivers should make alternate travel plans when crews close Interstate 90 between Seattle and Bellevue overnight.
From 11 p.m. May 20 until 5 a.m. May 21, state Department of Transportation crews will close eastbound I-90 at Richards Road and detour traffic onto Richards Road, Southeast 36th Street and to 150th Avenue Southeast to return to eastbound I-90. Workers will also close the ramps to eastbound I-90 from north and southbound Interstate 405, Bellevue Way and the 142nd Place Southeast high-occupancy vehicle ramp during the same period.
Plan ahead for additional overnight closures on segments of westbound I-90 between I-405 and Interstate 5 from May 24-27.
During the closures, DOT crews will install overhead electronic signs meant to smooth traffic flow.
