Traffic nightmare coming our way: prepare for Westbound I-90 lane closures

Traffic is going to be horrendous between Bellevue and Seattle from July 18th to July 25th due to Interstate 90 lane closures between Bellevue and Mercer Island. Adjust your travel schedule or you could be facing huge backups.

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) website, the westbound I-90 will be reduced to one lane at Bellevue Way Southeast from 9:30pm Friday July 18th until 5am, Friday, July 25th for replacement of expansion joints.

The road closure is going to cause for some traffic headaches, if not nightmares. The WSDOT is recommending the following during the closure period. They hope that 60% of the drivers can heed their advice.

  • Study the following images so that you understand what sections of the highway are affected and the revised traffic flow.
  • AVOID Westbound I-90.
  • Telecommute if possible.
  • Take vacation if possible.
