As the U.S. Navy Blue Angels zoom above Lake Washington this week, drivers on Interstate 90 should prepare for traffic to slow to a crawl several times between Thursday and Sunday, and consider alternate routes.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is required by the Federal Aviation Administration to close the Interstate 90 floating bridge five times to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians while the Blue Angels practice for and perform at the Seafair Air Show. The closures are to keep the public and pilots safe, and to minimize distractions.

Drivers should prepare for what the city called short, recurrent lane closures at two Front Street intersections July 28.
Starting as early as 5 a.m., crews intermittently will close lanes at the intersections of Front Street and Sunset Way, along with Front Street North and Northwest Dogwood Street, to accommodate tractor-trailers carrying 95-foot bridge girders.
The girders will be used in the new bridge on Northwest Dogwood Street.
