The I-405 southbound off-ramp to SR 520 westbound in Bellevue reopened late Thursday afternoon after it was blocked due to a stalled vehicle and spilled fuel, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The vehicle incident led to significant backups on SB I-405 southbound and I-90 westbound across Lake Washington entering rush hour, WSDOT noted on X.

The WSDOT advised fans traveling to Lumen Field in Seattle for the team’s first preseason game of the 2023 NFL season Thursday night to plan ahead and expect delays. Initially, the agency said the ramp was expected to remain closed past kickoff.
