Upcoming weekend directional closures coming to I-405 in downtown Bellevue

Publish Date

Sound Transit's contractor crew plan weekend northbound closures on Interstate 405 in August.

Last year crews built the temporary falsework structure (comprised of steel columns and beam) to support the concrete structure as it was cast and tensioned.

With the bridge complete, crews will disassemble the falsework using electric winches to lower the heavy steel beams safely to the ground. With southbound weekend closures complete, northbound weekend closures are necessary to safely complete this work.

Northbound – Friday, Aug. 16th, 10 p.m. – Monday, Aug. 19th, 5 a.m.

  • From Friday at 10 p.m. through Saturday night at midnight (Sunday morning) northbound I-405 ramps in Bellevue will be closed. Traffic will need to use ramp detour routes during this time. 
  • From Saturday night at midnight (Sunday morning) through Monday at 5 a.m. northbound mainline lanes will be closed. To minimize impacts to drivers, northbound I-405 traffic will need to use the collector-distributor road at exit 13B as a bypass route during this time.
