It’s a bird… It’s a plane… And it’s a full closure of the I-90 floating bridge
The Blue Angels are in town and many of you have already seen them in fantastic formations as they practice for this weekend’s Seafair Air Show. But any time they fly above Lake Washington, we need to close the I-90 floating bridge to ensure the safety of the public and pilots – and that causes frustrating formations on the road. So keep in mind, there will be three more I-90 closurestomorrow through Sunday. Several ramps will also be closed.

Weekend closure of SR 99 in Federal Way
One of those major weekend closures in August includes SR 99 in Federal Way. Mark your calendars, the highway will be closed to all traffic between Southwest 356th Street and South 373rd Street from 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14, to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 17. During the closure, crews will replace an old, small box culvert with a much larger one that will allow the West Fork Hylebos Creek to flow more freely under the highway. Learn more about the culvert replacement project and why a weekend closure is necessary on the project website.
