The weekend’s almost here! As we get going with today’s commute watch, those reminders again:
*At 7 pm tonight, the northbound I-5 exit to the West Seattle Bridge closes for the weekend, to reopen by 5 am Monday. State crews will be replacing two half-century-old expansion joints and replace “a 550-foot section of rutted-out roadway … with new concrete.” Here’s the detour map; here’s the schedule of other closures ahead for the same area.
*Sunday morning, the Alki Beach 5K – benefiting breast-cancer patients – closes part of Alki Avenue until about 11 am.
ADDED 2:04 PM: Two weekend closures you will want to know about if you’re using Highway 99 north of downtown:
Saturday, Aug. 24
Crews will close two lanes of southbound SR 99 across the Aurora Bridge from 6 a.m. to noon.
Sunday, Aug. 25
Crews will close two lanes of northbound SR 99 across the Aurora Bridge from 6 a.m. to noon.
