Expansion joints I-5, bumps...

It shouldn’t be as bad as last weekend, but construction will once again get in your way over the next three days.

Both directions of Interstate 5 in Seattle will get into the mix this weekend. Revive I-5 will close the right lanes of the freeway by 10 p.m. Friday night. This closure for expansion joint repair will last until early Monday morning. Two right lanes of northbound I-5 will be closed from Cherry Street to Olive Way all weekend too. This is part of the freeway expansion from Seneca.

Interstate 90 will see lane closures as well but not all weekend.

All eastbound lanes of I-90 between Seattle and Mercer Island will be closed overnight Friday, from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. This is for concrete repair. And up to three right lanes of eastbound I-90 will be closed from Mercer Island to 150th St in Bellevue at the same time. This is for quarterly maintenance.

In Tacoma, all southbound lanes of I-5 will be closed at Portland Avenue from 11 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. tomorrow. Drivers will be detoured to State Route 509 and State Route 705 back to the freeway. Workers need the room to remove the temporary forms from the new L Street overpass.

And Bremerton’s Warren Avenue Bridge will be reduced to two lanes again this weekend for ongoing concrete repairs. The lane closures start at 8 p.m. and last through Monday morning.
