WSDOT Traffic Advisory
We have a flammable restriction in the I-90 tunnels again this weekend.
Bottom line on this one for Saturday into Sunday… I-90 tunnels in both directions is off limits to flammable cargo and westbound SR 520 is closed to all traffic across Lake Washington so that’s not a viable alternate route for truckers. Eastbound 520 is still open for transport of flammable material across the lake.
I-90 across Lake Washington: Crews will close the eastbound mainline of I-90 from the Mercer Island Lid to the Mount Baker Tunnel from 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12 to 8 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 13 to test the fire suppression system. Traffic will be directed to the reversible express lanes. Drivers transporting flammable materials are not allowed in either direction of I-90. Due to a westbound SR 520 closure Saturday from 11:59 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Sunday between Montlake Boulevard and 92nd Avenue NE., drivers transporting flammable materials westbound will not be able to use SR 520 as an alternate route across Lake Washington.
