Big traffic headache coming to I-90
Beginning at 9:30 p.m. Friday, July 18, up to three westbound lanes on I-90 will be closed around the clock while contractors replace two aging and deteriorating 92-foot-long bridge expansion joints on the East Channel Bridge.
The closure will be in affect through Friday July 25 at 5 a.m.
WSDOT is urging drivers to make alternate plans such as carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting, using an alternate route, or adjusting their schedule to take advantage of off-peak travel times.
Traffic engineers estimate the best times to travel will be before 6 a.m., between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and after 7 p.m.
The westbound I-90 HOV lane will be open to all between I-405 and the east entrance to the center roadway.
