Weekend of Nov. 11-12: Bellevue Way SE and I-90 ramps to remain open

Weekday construction traffic impacts: Week of Nov. 13-17

Monday- Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.: As needed, one northbound lane of Bellevue Way Southeast may be closed from the north end of the South Bellevue Station site to the Wye at 112th Avenue Southeast.

Monday-Friday 8 p.m. to 3 p.m.: Daily/overnight closure of the Bellevue Way Southeast to I-90 west HOV ramp. The duration of these closures may vary based on the needs of the contractor, but the ramps are expected to remain open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Daily/overnight closures of the Bellevue Way Southeast to I-90 west HOV ramp are expected to continue on a regular basis throughout the project. During the closures the contractor is performing work to construct the columns and guideway.

Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.: In order to complete utility work Sound Transit's contractor will close up to two lanes of 112th Avenue Southeast, between Main Street and Southeast 8th. Two way traffic will be maintained at all times. During the closures, the 24-hour sidewalk closure listed below may be adjusted and sidewalk access will be maintained on one side of the street. Flaggers and detour signs will help guide people walking, biking and driving.

Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.: In order to complete utility work one southbound lane of Bellevue Way Southeast will be closed between the Wye at 112th and the Blueberry Farm. Upon completion of the work north of the Blueberry Farm, a similar closure of one southbound lane is expected between the main entrance to South Bellevue Station and Southeast 30th.

A look ahead

Sound Transit's contractor anticipates a full closure of Bellevue Way Southeast during the weekend of Nov. 18-19. The northbound lanes of 112th Avenue Southeast are expected to be reopened prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday and are expected to remain open through the end of the year.

Beginning in 2018, weekend closures are expected to be less frequent and for the most part, during future weekend closures, traffic will be maintained in both directions along Bellevue Way Southeast. The big exception to this will be three full closures near the end of the project. These full closures will be needed for final paving and striping of the roadway surface.
