Three lanes closing on westbound I-90 for a week

Bellevue anticipates major traffic delays at several on-ramps when the state Department of Transportation (WSDOT) closes three lanes of westbound Interstate 90, between Bellevue and Mercer Island, beginning Friday, July 18, at 9:30 p.m., until Friday, July 25, at 5 a.m.

The lanes need to be closed while crews replace two aging and deteriorating 92-foot-long bridge expansion joints on the East Channel Bridge. 

The lane closures will affect many of Bellevue’s key on-ramps to westbound I-90. WSDOT traffic engineers estimate the best time to travel will be before 6 a.m., between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and after 7 p.m. Engineers also estimate more than half of the 85,000 drivers who use westbound I-90 each day will need to use another route. The I-90 Trail will still be open and both bicyclists and pedestrians will be escorted through the construction work zone.

The City Council on Monday advanced several revisions to the draft Shoreline Management Program Update, which was recommended by the Planning Commission, and scheduled a public hearing on the document for August 4. 

In crafting a revised SMP draft for the public to consider, councilmembers grappled with several sticky issues, including public access, park development, the high water mark, residential nonconformities, setbacks and buffers, vegetation conservation, critical areas, residential moorage and shoreline stabilization.
