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.
