Interstate 90 express lane schedule changes
September 11, 2012
Motorists should notice a slight adjustment to the Interstate 90 express lane schedule.
Starting Sept. 5, the state Department of Transportation opened the I-90 express lanes to westbound traffic at 6 a.m. Crews used to open the lanes at 1 a.m., back when the process required separate crews to switch both the Interstate 5 and I-90 express lanes.
Now, the I-5 system is automated, so a single crew needs less time to switch both.
Under the revised schedule, I-90 express lanes open to westbound traffic from 6 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. weekdays. The lanes open to eastbound travel from 2 p.m. to 5 a.m.
On weekends, I-90 express lanes open to eastbound traffic from 2 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. the following Monday.
