Summer is fast approaching, which means construction projects around the state are ramping up.
While this construction work will help preserve and revitalize our highways, travelers will notice increased congestion and more time spent on the roads.
Here is the major road work happening over the next few months that could affect your summer travel plans:
- #Revive I-5 MLK to Ravenna: Weekend lane and ramp closures & two weekend-long full closures of northbound I-5 for repaving
- SB I-5 Lucile to Spring: Weekend lane and ramp closures for repaving
- SR 99 Roy to N 145th: Weekend daytime lane closures for repaving
- SR 99 Aurora Bridge: Weekend lane closures for bridge painting
- Issaquah to North Bend: Daytime single-lane eastbound closures for repaving
- North Bend to Ellensburg: Around-the-clock lane closures, traffic shifts and detours for concrete panel replacement and bridge deck repairs.
- I-5 Stillaguamish to Hill Ditch: Daytime single-lane closures for repaving
- US 2 Everett to Snohomish: Weekend lane closures & six weekend-long full closures of westbound US 2 for repaving
- SR 20 Sharpes Corner: Around-the-clock closures for roundabout construction
- I-5 Tacoma: Traffic shifts and configuration changes
- I-5 Lacey: Lane closures for Diverging Diamond construction
- US 12 White Pass: Daytime and weekend lane closures and alternating traffic for repaving
- Bridge Deck Repairs: Single-lane, alternating traffic 24/7, controlled by temporary signals at three locations.
- Passing Lane Construction: Single-lane, alternating traffic controlled by flaggers during working hours.
Special events can also affect traffic, and we have our share of big events going on this summer like Mariners and Sounders games, concerts, marathons, Blue Angels, you name it.
Bottom line is there’s a lot going on the next few months, and traffic will be affected. Stay one step ahead of the congestion with these great resources.
