Overnight work at I-90 and Lakeside Avenue South

Publish Date

Beginning as early as Monday, February 17, another traction power substation (TPSS) will be installed along the East Link Extension near Lakeside Avenue South and I-90. To safely complete this work, there will be lane closures on westbound I-90 along the floating bridge from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. 

Due to the size of the delivery, the truck carrying the TPSS unit will be led by pilot vehicles as it travels to the delivery site. During this time, drivers may notice slower traffic along I-90, including at on- and off-ramps. Temporary light plants and generators may be used, and noise from the crane placing the unit may be noticeable. Lighting will be directed downward away from nearby homes to the greatest extent possible, and noise mitigation measures will be in place to minimize impacts.
