Lane closures on I-5 in south Seattle this weekend

Friday, March 29, 2013

If you are heading south of Seattle this weekend, plan ahead for your return trip north.

Three out of five northbound lanes on I-5 will be closed between South Albro Place and the West Seattle Bridge. The closure started at 8pm Friday, March 29 and goes through Monday, April 1 at 5am.

The closure is necessary for some important safety repairs. Crews will tear out and replace four expansion joints that are nearly 50 years old. When they get old, the joints can pop up from the freeway creating unsafe obstacles for drivers, expensive emergency repairs and traffic backups.

Makes a whole lot of sense to create a traffic impediment on Easter Weekend. Looks more like yet another passive-aggressive persecution of Christian by state government.
