The closures are part of the Revive I-5 project, a series of weekend work sessions to repair and resurface portions of Interstate 5.
Motorists should allow extra travel time this weekend as another round of lane closures on Seattle’s northbound Interstate 5 for repaving is expected to cause major delays.
Crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will reduce northbound I-5 to two lanes between the Swift Avenue/Albro Place offramp and Highway 520, from 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.
Traffic will move onto the I-5 collector distributor.
I-5 northbound also will be reduced to two lanes between Highway 520 and Northeast 45th Street from 2 a.m. to noon on Aug. 11 and Aug. 12. The Harvard Avenue East onramp to I-5 will also be closed during this time.
