Crews are now expected to complete the July I-90 bridge repair project more than a week ahead of schedule. WSDOT’s goal is to open the Westbound I-90 floating bridge lanes by July 20, but commuters should still plan ahead for congestion. Need ideas on how to avoid the backup? Choose Your Way Bellevue has laid out a number of ways to help you change your travel habits:
Alter your work schedule – Talk to your employer about coming to work earlier (WSDOT suggests 6 a.m. or earlier) or choose to telework for a portion of the construction period (July 5 – 20).
Take a vacation – You know you deserve it!

Choose Your Way Bellevue invites you to tell us about your experience with the May I-90 HOV lane closure. Post your comments to the blog to share with us and other commuters!
