WSDOT will close all lanes of I-90 between I-5 and Island Crest Way for the following times between Thursday, July 30 and Sunday, August 2:

Thursday, July 30                       9:45am-12pm &1:15 pm-2:30pm

Friday, July 31                           12:45pm-2:40pm

Saturday, August 1                    12:45pm-2:40pm           

Sunday, August 2                      12:45pm-2:40pm


The Island Crest Way and East Mercer Way exits will remain open however drivers, bus riders and bicyclists should be expectant of heavy congestion during and around the closure times.

If you still plan to cross Lake Washington via I-90, plan to get to the bridge an hour ahead of the closure time. As an alternative, The SR 520 bridge will be open to traffic during closures.
