As the Blue Angels fly into town for this week’s big Seafair airshow, I-90 will close for little while during the week.  According to Washington State DOT:

Interstate 90 will be closed to all vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, eastbound and westbound, mainline and express lanes, between Interstate 5 in Seattle to Island Crest Way on Mercer Island:

  • Thursday, Aug. 4:  9:45am – 12:00pm and again between 1:15pm  –  2:30pm (Practice)
  • Friday, Aug. 5:  12:45pm  – 2:40pm (Practice)
  • Saturday, Aug. 6:  12:45pm  –  2:40pm (Full show)
  • Sunday, Aug. 7:  12:45pm – 2:40pm (Full show)

* The bridge will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists up to 30 minutes prior to posted closure times.

I-90 east of Mercer Island will NOT be closed during the performance, although drivers should note that heavy congestion during these closures often restricts access to the exits.

The I-90 express lanes will close at 9:00am on Thursday, August 4 and at 10:45am Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 5, 6, and 7. The lanes will reopen to eastbound traffic by 3:30pm each day.
