Major I-90 Closures Next Week: Bike to Work Instead!

Westbound I-90 from Bellevue to Mercer Island will have major closures next week due to construction. It will be the perfect time to take your bike to work instead! Construction will start at 9:30 pm on Friday, July 18th and will end at 5 am Friday, July 25th. There will only be one lane open for cars, which will cause major delays. However, the bike lanes will be open during the day with an expected delay of only 5 minutes. 

The chart from WSDOT below shows expected commute times if only 40% of regular traffic takes the route (60% diversion). If less than than 60% diverts, delays will be much worse. Backups could be up to 10 miles long.

The construction will cause delays all across the region, so even if you don't take I-90, it will be a good time to take your bike instead!
