Traffic to stop several times overnight on I-5 in north Seattle, March 20-24

Friday, March 17, 2017

Attention late-night commuters: Anyone who uses I-5 through Seattle needs to be prepared to see some delays overnight next week while WSDOT helps Seattle City Light with some important work.

Starting Monday, March 20 through Friday, March 24, traffic going both directions of I-5 will slow to a stop up to five times between State Route 520 and Northeast Northgate Way, from 11:59pm until 4am the next morning.

Traffic may be stopped for up to 25 minutes during these hours.

The northbound I-5 off-ramp to Ravenna Boulevard / Northeast 65th Street and the Northeast 50th Street on-ramp to northbound I-5 will also close from 11:59pm Monday to 4am Tuesday.

This is all so Seattle City Light crews can pull power lines over I-5 at Northeast 60th Street to help enhance the reliability of their electrical system.

If you want to find out more about what’s going on, check out the project page and the Seattle City Light Twitter page.
