Drivers planning a cross-lake trip into Seattle should plan for changes this Sunday. To accommodate heavy traffic heading to Seattle for the Seahawks game against the Minnesota Vikings, Sunday, Nov. 4, the Interstate 90 express lanes will be westbound from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. The lanes will reopen to eastbound traffic by 3 p.m.
Drivers can monitor traffic conditions in downtown Seattle this weekend by checking the Seattle traffic map at www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic/seattle. Drivers can also find the express lane schedules for both I-5 and I-90 at www.wsdot.wa.gov/Northwest/King/ExpressLanes/default.htm, and learn the reasons for occasional weekend schedule adjustments at wsdotblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/why-are-express-lanes-going-wrong-way.html.
