NEW — 6 a.m. July 12, 2013
A packed weekend is planned on the Eastside for crews working on critical maintenance and preservation projects on state Route 520 and Interstate 405.
From 10 p.m. July 12 to 5 a.m. July 14, crews will close all northbound lanes of I-405 through downtown Bellevue for concrete panel replacement. Crews will also close the 520 floating bridge for its annual inspection, and culvert installation.
The state Department of Transportation is asking drivers to plan ahead and help reduce congestion by taking transit, carpooling, using alternate routes or delaying trips.
Drivers should plan for congestion, particularly on Interstate 90 near the detour routes, westbound state Route 520 approaching I-405, and northbound I-405 where all drivers must exit at Southeast Eighth Street.
