In the mainlines Monday through Friday, one or two lanes in various locations of both westbound and eastbound I-90 from 8th Avenue S. to just north of 150th Avenue SE will close each night for electrical work. The first lane will close at 7 p.m., and the second lane closes at 9 p.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.

On the same days, two lanes on westbound I-90 just west of East Mercer Way will close for construction work. The first lane will close at 8 p.m. and the second lane will close at 9 p.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.
