No weekend closures planned for June, but Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) says full weekend closures?of the I-5 on and off-ramps at Mercer Street will occur in July and August:
- July 6 – 9
- July 13 – 16
- August 10 – 13
- August 24 – 27
Closure hours are scheduled to begin Fridays at 11:00 p.m. to Mondays at 5:00 a.m., however the project?is dependent on weather and availability of materials and is subject to cancellation.??Detour route maps are available on the project website by clicking here.?? SDOT writes:
Detour routes shown will be signed on roadways and may be heavily used, particularly Denny Way both eastbound and westbound. Travelers are advised to consider alternate routes to their destinations such as SR 99 or alternate I-5 exits and entrances. Please note that all South Lake Union businesses will remain open and will be accessible via alternative routes.?During these closures, the I-5 on-ramp at University Street will be concurrently closed to provide more efficient traffic flow around the closed Mercer Street exit lane. Fairview Avenue N will also be closed between Mercer Street and Valley Street and Mercer Street will be closed to through traffic between Westlake Avenue N and Fairview Avenue N. All detour routes will be clearly marked to support traffic flow around the closures.
Mark your calendars!? I think?my family?will be at home enjoying mini stay-cations…
