Long traffic delays and bumper-to-bumper backups are expected on both sides of Lake Washington this weekend.
Crews will shut down sections of Interstate 405 for construction work on the new light rail link between Seattle and Bellevue.
This weekend all northbound lanes of I-405 will be closed between NE 10th Street and Main Street in Bellevue
from 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 19. Several I-405 on-ramps and off-ramps will be closed that weekend as well.
The closures are necessary so that crews can remove a temporary support structure from the new concrete
light rail span that crosses over the freeway.
