The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) reminds travelers of the previously announced closure of the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street occurring May 20 – May 23. Closure hours are expected to be from Friday at 11:00 p.m. to Monday at 5:00 a.m.
Updated detour route maps are available on the project website. Detour routes shown will be signed on roadways and may be heavily used, particularly Denny Way both eastbound and westbound. Travelers are advised to consider alternate routes to their destinations such as SR 99 or alternate I-5 exits and entrances.
During these closures, the I-5 on-ramp at University Street will be concurrently closed to provide more efficient traffic flow around the closed Mercer Street exit lane. Fairview Avenue N will also be closed between Mercer Street and Valley Street, and Mercer Street will be closed to through traffic between Westlake Avenue N and Fairview Avenue N. All detour routes will be clearly marked to support traffic flow around the closures.
