CLOSURE ALERT: Next major NB I-5 work set for July 13-15

One more reason to stay on the peninsula and spend the weekend of July 13-14-15 at West Seattle Summer Fest: The next major “Revive I-5” closure of northbound I-5 is planned for that weekend. WSDOT is stepping up the awareness-raising starting today and e-mailed us to be sure West Seattleites know about it. This time, they’re being clearer in advance about what will be closed and what will be open. Though the one-line description will be “Northbound I-5 closed at the West Seattle Bridge,” you will be able to exit onto the westbound bridge if you are approaching from the south, and you will be able to use the exit from the eastbound bridge to get to eastbound I-90, or the collector/distributor offramps to James/Madison Street, continuing back on to I-5 post-closure-zone. “One of our key messages is that you still can get to and from West Seattle during the closure,” Tom Pearce, the project’s lead communicator, assures us. Here’s the full explanation of what’s happening, where, and when.

    I have to say it was a dream getting to I-90 during the last closure. It was like we had our own personal ramp with no impeding traffic! Was glad I asked on their FB Page because none of these charts were very clear what access is available from the WS Bridge.

      We also provided that feedback in a Twitter discussion & that’s why they’ve tried to be clearer about WS access this time.

      Agreed. It’s a lovely little treat in the midst of the closure!
