WSDOT weekend traffic report

Southbound I-5 closed 12:30-5:30 a.m. Saturday

All lanes of southbound I-5 at the Stewart Street/Denny Way off-ramp will be closed from 12:30 to 5:30 a.m. Saturday, July 25, for fire suppression testing under the Washington State Convention Center. Early morning drivers will follow a signed detour to get around the closure. The Mercer Street and Yale Avenue on-ramps to southbound I-5 will also be closed. Flammable cargo is prohibited during the closures.

Ship Canal Bridge cleaning to delay opening of I-5 express lanes

The I-5 express lanes won’t open until late into the morning on both Saturday, July 25, and Sunday, July 26. The delays will allow our maintenance crews space to inspect the Ship Canal Bridge. The express lanes will be southbound at 11:30 a.m. and then switch to northbound by 1:45 p.m.

Northbound SR 99 closure Saturday evening for Seafair event

Runners all decked out in their favorite pirate gear will take to the streets Saturday evening for the Michelob Ultra Seafair Pirate Run. Northbound SR 99 will be closed from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. The closure will take place between S. Royal Brougham Way up to the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel. 

Special events to note

Running pirates won’t be the only traffic impact you could face this weekend. The Mariners are also in town. Be sure to check out our King County Special Events webpage for details on several events taking place throughout the Seattle area. 

SR 18 weekend-long lane and ramp closures, July 24-27

Headed south of Seattle this weekend? I-5 and SR 167 could get jammed due to a major closure on SR 18 in Auburn. Westbound SR 18 at SR 167 and one lane eastbound will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday. Several ramps will also be closed. Crews working on the SR 167 - 8th to 277th Southbound HOT Lane project will add a new bridge pier to support a new overpass. You can read more about the closure in this blog.

Daily I-90 full closures July 30 to Aug. 2 for Seafair Air Show

As the Blue Angels fly fast above Lake Washington next week, traffic on the roads may come to a crawl. To keep the public and pilots safe, the I-90 floating bridges will be closed to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in the midday hours next Thursday through Sunday. Several ramps will also be closed.

Good To Go! introduces new program to resolve customer disputes

Starting Monday, July 20, we changed how we resolve disputes for customers who have received a penalty for unpaid tolls. Customers who have an unpaid civil penalty can contact Good To Go! at 1-866-936-8246 to request a one-time waiver of fees and penalties if they agree to pay all outstanding tolls. The purpose of this program is to collect the toll and educate customers so they won't get behind on their bill in the future.
