More lane closures are planned for Interstate 405 in South Bellevue as the state Department of Transportation continues construction for its highway widening project. Project managers will limit lane closures on northbound I-405 due to a round-the-clock, 19-day closure of multiple lanes on northbound I-5.
Construction closures affecting I-405 traffic in Bellevue Aug. 10-17 include:
- Monday night, crews will close the ramp from Coal Creek Parkway to northbound I-405 from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Tuesday morning, to place a temporary barrier.
- Monday and Tuesday nights, crews will close one southbound lane of I-405 between Main Street and Southeast Eighth Street, from 10 p.m. each night to 5 a.m. the following morning, for survey work.
- Wednesday and Thursday nights, crews will close one northbound lane of I-405 between 112th Avenue Southeast and Coal Creek Parkway, from 10 p.m. each night to 4 a.m. the following morning. In preparation for expanding the I-405 bridge over Coal Creek Parkway, a temporary barrier will be installed and electrical, survey and utility work will be performed.
- On Thursday night, crews will close one lane of the ramp from southbound I-405 to Coal Creek Parkway, from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Friday morning. At the same time, WSDOT will turn off signal lights at the interchanges between Coal Creek Parkway and the on- and off-ramps so crews can do electrical and other utility work. The State Patrol will direct traffic.
These closures are necessary for the addition of lanes to I-405. WSDOT's I-405 South Bellevue Widening web page has more details, and offers readers the option of signing up for e-mail updates.
