Here are the areas that WADOT is most concerned with for the 4th of July travel days:
• Two big closures of eastbound SR 520, but they’re only overnight. The eastbound SR 520 bridge across Lake Washington will be closed each night this weekend; the bike/pedestrian trail will remain open.
Additionally, there’s an eastbound SR 520 closure in Redmond between 148th and NE 40th from Friday night to Saturday morning. Plan to use eastbound I-90 as an alternate route.
• Don’t forget that SR 18 is down to one lane in each direction between Tiger Mountain and I-90. That closure is in effect until next year as we widen the highway.
• Lots of events all in the afternoon and evening Saturday at the stadiums in Seattle. Give yourself more time than you think you need to if you’re headed to a game or match.
If you are on the roads this holiday season, there is a great traffic map that you can check out from WA DOT that's in real-time and you can click here for more details.
