[ARCHIVED] Traffic Alert: Eastbound I-90 between Issaquah and North Bend

More than 15 miles of cracked and damaged concrete on Interstate 90 between Issaquah and North Bend will soon be repaired as crews begin work on a new, two-year project.

Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) contractor crews from Acme Concrete Paving Inc. will preserve this critical east-west route by repairing cracked and chipped pavement and replacing the concrete damaged beyond repair.

Work on the $21.7 million project begins May 7.

Over the next two years, crews will also pave the outside shoulder; 10 on- and off-ramps; and lay down new concrete on the eastbound I-90 Winery Road bridge and the westbound I-90 Raging River bridge.

Lane closures 
Drivers should plan for the following during the project: 
  • Single and double lane closures during the day
  • Up to three lanes closed overnight 
  • Around-the-clock shoulder closures
  • Overnight ramp closures
  • Speed limit reduced to 55 mph
Check the King County construction page for upcoming I-90 closure details.

Summer travel on I-90 
This project is one of four on I-90 between Issaquah and Ellensburg. Travelers should plan for construction delays:

  • East of North Bend, where crews are repairing bridge decks and replacing concrete. 
  • East of Snoqualmie Pass summit, where crews are widening I-90. 
  • In Easton, Thorp and Ellensburg, where crews are repaving several of the I-90 interchanges.
