Washington State Department of Transportation crews will be working on northbound I-5 to replace metal on expansion joints, reducing the freeway in that direction to just two lanes across the Duwamish River Bridges.

Work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, and will extend through 11:59 p.m. Sunday. In total, work will close three lanes of northbound I-5 wil be blocked between the I-405/SR 518 interchange.

On-ramps for southbound I-405 HOV, Southcenter Boulevard, and Interurban Avenue South will also be closed. Expect alternate routes in Tukwila

This will be the second of two weeks of work on I-5 near Tukwila.
