The southbound Fourth Avenue South on-ramp to I-90 and I-5 at Edgar Martinez Drive South, and the southbound, right lane of Fourth Avenue South, are closed for repairs. Drivers who normally use this ramp are being detoured on southbound Fourth Avenue South to South Holgate Street and back to Edgar Martinez Drive South by way of northbound First Avenue South. Crews expect to reopen the lanes by 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept 29, in time for the Mariners’ game.
If work is not finished on Tuesday, the lanes and ramp could close again at 11 p.m. nightly until 5 p.m. each following day until the work is done. Drivers are advised to consider alternate routes, allow extra time, or use carpool or transit.
A contractor working for WSDOT is repairing a roadway structure at this location following damage by an over-height semi truck.
