BREAKING NEWS

Gonna be a busy traffic weekend in Puget Sound:
Here’s why you should plan ahead

May 18, 2018




CLICK TO ENLARGE: MAP of work aeas/expected traffic delays this weekend.
Revive I-5, US 2 & special events to snarl weekend traffic

Chronicle staff


(SEATTLE, WA.) – The combination of popular spring events and major roadwork means if you’re planning to head to either Seattle or Everett this weekend, you should prepare for substantial traffic delays.

Take a glance at this week’s traffic “paint map” (at right) from the state transportation dept.

Revive I-5 returns: AVOID northbound I-5 again this weekend

Revive I-5 work is back in Seattle this weekend, but people throughout the region will need to plan for delays on major highways and city streets on Saturday, May 19, and Sunday, May 20.

In addition to northbound I-5, people using I-405, I-90and state routes 99, 509 and 599 will see heavier traffic as travelers avoid the region’s main interstate. The express lanes will be open in the northbound direction all weekend, which will create backups on southbound I-5 as well.

These closures will allow contractor crews to replace concrete and the left half of nine expansion joints. State maintenance crews will also repair aging concrete on the Ship Canal Bridge.

Here’s a list of what will be closed:

8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday

Northbound I-5 reduced to two lanes between Michigan Street & SR 520.
The Dearborn Street on-ramp to northbound I-5.
The northbound I-5 off-ramp to Seneca Street.
University Street on-ramp to northbound I-5.
Mercer Street on-ramp to the northbound I-5 mainline.
NOTE: The Mercer on-ramp to the express lanes will remain open. However, you will not be able to access eastbound SR 520 from that ramp.
8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday

3 a.m. to noon Saturday & 3 to 10 a.m. Sunday

Northbound I-5 will remain two lanes between SR 520 and NE 45th/50th Streets.

There were long backups on northbound I-5 last weekend, and it took drivers at least a half hour to get through the closure area, according to WSDOT. The hope is if enough people stay away from northbound I-5 – by either taking alternate routes or limiting discretionary travel – backups will be kept to a minimum.

Even when 50% of vehicles don’t use northbound I-5, all of that traffic has to go somewhere else. So that means that you should expect delays not only on the major highways in the area, but also on Seattle surface streets.

You can help keep these delays from getting out-of-control by:

Using public transportation, including light rail.
Carpooling or vanpooling.
Traveling before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m.
Using alternate routes like state routes 99, 509, 518 and I-405.
If you’re traveling to or from the eastside, SR 520 is another alternate route to avoid the long backups near the I-90/I-5 junction.
Avoiding discretionary trips.
