The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) advises travelers of a temporary single lane closure on the I-5 off-ramp to Mercer Street scheduled for tonight, May 5, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The far left lane of the off-ramp will be closed for a short distance just east of Fairview Avenue N.
This temporary closure accommodates saw-cutting of pavement in preparation for utility installations as part of the Mercer Corridor Project. Utility installations will continue this weekend while the on- and off-ramps are closed for construction. Information about weekend closures of the I-5 on- and off-ramps to Mercer Street is available at: http://www.seattle.gov/Transportation/ppmp_mercer.htm .
