Weekday Construction traffic impacts: Monday, September 17 – Friday, September 21
Sunday-Thursday (Friday morning) night closures, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.: In order to safely construct East Link’s aerial guideway in south Bellevue, Sound Transit’s contractor plans to close the southbound I-405 to westbound I-90 HOV ramp and the I-90 westbound HOV lane between I-405 and the East Chanel Bridge.
Wednesday-Thursday (Friday morning) night closures, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.: In order to install a crane, Sound Transit’s contractor plans to close the westbound I-90 to northbound I-405 HOV ramp.
Bellevue Way SE
In order to work in the eastside curb lane while maintaining two lanes of traffic in the peak direction (northbound 6-10 a.m. and southbound 2-6 p.m.) crews will use the ‘southbound center lane’ as a reversible traffic lane. At times, northbound vehicles will travel in what is normally a southbound lane.
Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Work is set to begin on the light rail trench and guideway adjacent to Bellevue Way SE, between the South Bellevue Station site and the Wye at 112th Avenue SE. Throughout the project, two lanes will be maintained in the peak direction: northbound in the morning and southbound in the afternoon. Sound Transit’s contractor will use cones and lane delineators to guide traffic along Bellevue Way SE. Please follow the direction of flaggers and signage to safely access your destination. More info on what to expect can be found at the East Link long-term and ongoing closures page.
