A look ahead

Sound Transit's contractor anticipates one additional closure of Bellevue Way Southeast during the weekend of Nov. 18-19. More information on what to expect during this closure will be provided in a future alert.

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.
