Northgate Way to northbound Interstate 5 on-ramp closure

Beginning Sunday, January 26, 2020, Sound Transit will be closing the on-ramp to northbound Interstate 5 via Northgate Way in Seattle to construct the columns for the future aerial guideway.

This closure is a necessary step for construction of the Lynnwood Link light rail.

According to Sound Transit spokesperson My Nguyen, "This closure is not 24-hours and will be between the hours of 9:30pm to 5am at Northgate Way."

The back half of the mall has been demolished, so the traffic jams may not be as serious as if the mall were full of businesses.

CORRECTION: Best Buy is still open! My error.

Are you sure the Best Buy is closed? There is no indication on their site that is the case.

I was completely wrong about that. It's open and they even have a little neon sign in the window that says "open".
