The previously announced January 13 – 16 weekend closure of the I-5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street for Seattle Department of Transportation’s street improvement project has been canceled due to impacts from rainy weather.
A full weekend closure is tentatively rescheduled for the following weekend of January 20 – 23. Closure hours are scheduled for Friday at 11 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m.
During this closure, crews will prepare for Stage 2 of the Mercer East project by switching eastbound Mercer Street traffic onto the new Mercer Street lanes north of the existing lanes. Detour maps for both the weekend closure and Stage 2 are available on the project website: www.seattle.gov/transportation/ppmp_mercer.htm.
