The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) announces the next confirmed weekend closure of the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street as part of the Mercer Corridor Project.
Full weekend closure will occur the following weekend in October:
• October 7 – 10
Closure hours are scheduled for Friday at 11:00 p.m. to Monday at 5:00 a.m. During this closure, crews will be laying asphalt in preparation for the new on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street. Please note that this work is dependent on weather and availability of materials and is subject to cancelation.
Detour route maps are available on the project website at:
www.seattle.gov/Transportation/ppmp_mercer.htm. Detour routes shown will be signed on roadways and may be heavily used, particularly Denny Way both eastbound and westbound. During this closure, 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.
Travelers are encouraged to carpool and use alternate modes of transportation. Transit information can be found at:
