Beginning March 9, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has announced it will be resuming the I-90 project to create added capacity between the Eastgate and SR 900 interchanges by adding auxiliary lanes.
Work on the project previously was postponed in November due to winter weather.
Plan ahead—work is scheduled to take place during the day from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. but will also include night work and overnight lane reductions for the next few weeks.
Drivers can expect delays through the construction area due to lane shifts, lane reductions and restriping—updates will be posted weekly on WSDOT’s I-90 construction page.
Work on the noise walls is slated to begin later this year and is expected to impact travel along Northwest Sammamish Road. More details will be shared along with impacts, as WSDOT works to finalize their traffic control plans.
The entire project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2021.
