Tue., Aug. 2, 2016
SEATTLE – The Interstate 90 floating bridge across Seattle’s Lake Washington will be closed at various times starting Thursday as the U.S. Navy Blue Angels take to the sky.
The Washington Department of Transportation says the bridge will be closed to traffic during practices Thursday and Friday and during the Seafair Air Show on Saturday and Sunday.
The closures on I-90 will be from 1:15 to 2:40 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. There will be an additional closure between 9:45 a.m. and noon on Thursday. Express lanes will close one hour before those closure times all four day.
The closures will extend from the I-90/Interstate 5 interchange in Seattle to Island Crest Way on Mercer Island.
The SR 520 floating bridge will remain open to traffic and tolls will be collected as usual.
