Traffic will be tight around Montlake Boulevard this weekend

Brace for traffic jams this weekend, when Montlake Boulevard Northeast will be closed alongside Husky Stadium for construction of a pedestrian-bicycle bridge to Sound Transit’s future University of Washington Station.

Work lasts from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Monday. Most of the weekend, all northbound and southbound lanes, and all sidewalks, will close at the site. Traffic will follow marked detours around the Rainier Vista triangle — northbound using a direct route, but southbound drivers must go as far west as Brooklyn Avenue Northeast before backtracking with multiple turns, to go past UW Medical Center.
