Drivers heading across the Montlake Bridge should anticipate delays the morning of Saturday, March, 1.

Drivers exiting Montlake Boulevard from SR 520 could see delays and should plan extra time in their trips when traveling through the area.

Eastside driver alert: Overnight closures planned for westbound on-ramp at 84th Avenue Northeast
Eastside drivers planning nighttime trips to Seattle in the coming week should be aware of upcoming overnight closures of the westbound on-ramp to SR 520 at 84th Avenue Northeast. The ramp closures are needed for crews to complete work at that location.
The overnight on-ramp closures will be from:
- 9 p.m. Saturday, March 1 to 6 a.m. Sunday, March 2
- 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 4 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 5
- 9 p.m. Thursday, March 6 to 5 a.m. Friday, March 7
- 9 p.m. Monday, March 10 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, March 11
During the closures, crews will construct the foundation for a sign bridge that will span the highway, install barriers and replace ramp pavement that was removed last week so workers could repair a damaged stormwater pipe that runs beneath the on-ramp.
Outside the closure hours, one lane of the westbound on-ramp will remain open to motorists. Once the upcoming work is finished, the ramp’s general-purpose lane and transit/HOV lane both will be open.
