Long-term eastbound I-90 lane shift signals start of construction on Sunset Creek project

BELLEVUE – A long-term shift of the eastbound Interstate 90 lanes in Bellevue begins later this month, marking the onset of major construction for the nearly 3.5-year I-90 Sunset Creek fish passage project.

Beginning at 4 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23, the eastbound lanes will jog to the left and into the newly paved median between the I-405 interchange and 148th Avenue Southeast. Travelers will also encounter a rolling slowdown between 12:01 and 4 a.m. while crews paint new lines on the freeway.
