I-405 closure in Renton: Prepare yourself

Tomorrow night at around 9 p.m. we will be closing the carpool lane on southbound I-405, which will have the potential to wreak havoc on traffic over the weekend. I would just stay home, but that's not necessarily feasible for a lot of people - plus, there are Mariners and Sounders games to go to! We are really trying to get the word out and let people know that the HOV lane closures this weekend have the potential to affect not only I-405, but SR 167 and SR 181 as well.

We need to get more than 30% of traffic to use alternate routes or drivers can expect major delays. By major we're talking hour-long...or longer. Yuck.

So, spread the word and tell everyone you know who may be affected. Go to our What's Happening Now page to get more details and check out more information on the the project.
