It’s a bird… It’s a plane… And it’s a full closure of the I-90 floating bridge | South King County Transportation

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.
