More I-405 lane closures through Bellevue planned this weekend

Interstate 405 through Bellevue could see more traffic delays this weekend during the late-evening and early-morning hours as northbound vehicles are restricted to a single lane.

During the lane closures,  construction crews will demolish and replace nearly three dozen concrete panels on the corridor. The panels are approaching 50 years old and at the end of their lifespans, according to a Washington State Department of Transportation news release.

The freeway work is part of the I-405 Concrete Replacement and Rehabilitation Project. The project will replace more than 900 panels on northbound I-405 through Bellevue. Bumpy sections that are not being replaced will be ground down to improve ride smoothness.

The three left lanes between Southeast Eighth Street and Highway 520 will be closed overnight on Friday and Saturday.

The lanes close nightly at 10 p.m. By 6 a.m. each day, one of the closed lanes will reopen, with all lanes open by 9 a.m.

The northbound HOV exit to Northeast Sixth Street will be closed on Friday, July 19,  from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday, July 20. It will be open on Saturday night. The Northeast Sixth Street HOV on-ramp to northbound I-405 will be closed both nights from 10 p.m. until 9 a.m.

Another weekend-long closure of all northbound lanes is scheduled for Aug. 10-11.

WSDPT  is encouraging drivers  to use its Seattle traffic map to check real-time road conditions, download the WSDOT app for cellphones and other wireless devices or call 511.
