Rollover crash causes traffic backups on I-405 in Renton

Update at 7:30 p.m.: There are no longer backups in either direction of Interstate 405, but traffic is still slow, WSDOT said.

Update at 5:05 p.m.: All lanes are now open on southbound Interstate 405, but there are significant backups in both directions. Southbound traffic is backed up 7 miles. Northbound traffic is now 9 miles long.

Original post: Traffic is backed up for miles in both directions of Interstate 405 in Renton because of a rollover crash at Northeast 44th Street, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The northbound traffic backup is 7 miles long; southbound traffic is backed up 5 miles. The crash site is only blocking the HOV lane, but was blocking multiple lanes earlier Thursday afternoon.

Drivers should use Interstate 90 or Highway 520 to Interstate 5 as an alternative, according to WSDOT.
