I-90 Construction Project Could Impact Weekend Travel Time to Safeco Field
If you’re coming westbound across I-90 this weekend to see the Mariners play the Texas Rangers, you might want to give yourself some extra time to get to the ballpark because of a construction project on I-90.
Beginning at 11pm Friday, April 17, the Washington State Department of Transportation will close westbound lanes of I-90 east of Mercer Island and detour traffic onto the express lanes.
If you can, detour around the area by taking I-405, SR 520 or even I-5, you might save yourself some time.
The closure will be in effect until 5am Monday, April 20.
A similar closure is planned for May 15-18, when the Mariners play the Boston Red Sox.
Here is a look at the map of the construction project:
