Seattle-area roadwork brings closures, detours

Seattle-area motorists will encounter some road and highway closures this weekend so plan accordingly.

The University Bridge will be closed from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. today and Sunday. Drivers can detour to either the Montlake or Interstate 5 bridges.

Work crews have closed the ramps from the West Seattle Bridge to northbound I-5 and Columbian Way until 5 a.m. Monday. The ramp from Sixth Avenue South to northbound I-5 and South Columbian Way also will be closed for expansion joint replacement and bridge support repair.

The Interstate 90 express lanes are closed until 11 a.m. Sunday so Sound Transit can survey and drill for soil samples as part of the  East Link Extension light-rail project. The Seattle portion of the I-90 express lanes will reopen by 6 a.m. Sunday – eastbound to Mercer Island only – in time for the Mercer Island Half Marathon.
