Three lanes closing on westbound I-90 for a week
New expansion joints for westbound I-90 East Channel Bridge. WSDOT photo

Bellevue anticipates major traffic delays at several on-ramps when the state Department of Transportation (WSDOT) closes three lanes of westbound Interstate 90, between Bellevue and Mercer Island, beginning Friday, July 18, at 9:30 p.m., until Friday, July 25, at 5 a.m.

The lanes need to be closed while crews replace two aging and deteriorating 92-foot-long bridge expansion joints on the East Channel Bridge. 

The lane closures will affect many of Bellevue’s key on-ramps to westbound I-90. WSDOT traffic engineers estimate the best time to travel will be before 6 a.m., between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and after 7 p.m. Engineers also estimate more than half of the 85,000 drivers who use westbound I-90 each day will need to use another route. The I-90 Trail will still be open and both bicyclists and pedestrians will be escorted through the construction work zone.
