Avoid driving this weekend: I-5, 520 bridge and Highway 99 closures

This may be the best weekend of the summer not to drive.

Here’s a rundown on construction-related closures, some of which we recently mapped out for you.

The four biggest shutdowns this weekend:

  • Interstate 5 northbound, two right lanes will close from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday, at the West Seattle Bridge exit.
  • I-5 northbound, two lanes at the Ship Canal Bridge closed from 3:30 to 11 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday; on Saturday one lane will stay closed until dusk, and on Sunday one lane stays closed until 4 p.m.
  • Highway 520, closed between the Montlake Boulevard exit and I-405 all weekend, from 11 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.
  • Highway 99, closed southbound along the entire Alaskan Way Viaduct from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

King County Metro Transit says buses will be re-routed. Sound Transit 545 and Metro routes 255, 271 and 280 will use I-90 during the closure of the Highway 520 floating bridge. With the viaduct closed, the RapidRide C Line to West Seattle and Route 120 to Delridge-White Center must run through Sodo outbound.

And there will be a few lesser disruptions, including these:

  • I-5 northbound, a single lane closes near the Interurban Avenue South exit in Tukwila, from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday.
  • Fourth Avenue South, the Argo Bridge will have shifting lane closures Sunday morning for painting, from 7 a.m. until possibly noon.
  • Fremont Bridge, the Fremont 5K and Briefcase Relay will pass through North 34th Street and other roads between 5:45 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday.
