Week-Long Lane Reductions on Westbound I-90 East of Issaquah Start Sunday Night, June 11

The final two major lane reductions for the westbound Interstate 90 paving project will begin Sunday night, June 11. The closures will be in place 24 hours a day for two weeks.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will reduce westbound I-90 between Preston and Issaquah from:

  • 9 p.m. Sunday, June 11, to 6 a.m. Sunday, June 18, reduced to two lanes.
  • 9 p.m. Sunday, June 18, to 6 a.m. Sunday, June 25, reduced to one lane.

Because there are few alternative routes, people traveling westbound I-90 should plan and allow additional time. Those going to the Green River Valley south of Renton should consider using State Route 18.

Westbound I-90 preservation
During the lane reductions, crews will shift traffic and repave a bridge over East Fork Issaquah Creek about a mile west of the Southeast High Point Way interchange. This work takes more time than earlier lane reductions because the type of concrete being used requires a longer cure time.

After the week-long lane reductions conclude, the crews will have overnight lane reductions to repair other sections of westbound I-90. All this work is part of a project that replaced a 1,550-foot section of pavement in 2022 and is repairing several bridge decks. Work will finish this summer.

Travelers can get real-time traffic information on mobile phones with the WSDOT traffic app and by following the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed.

  • Well this is ridiculous because the reason that this actually happened was the concrete strike the Unions were doing, and now that they were told that they can’t inconvenience everyone with property damage, refusal to work and costing the taxpayers and call it the same thing as protesting which is civil disobedience, now they’re using slower drying concrete for the same purpose, to inconvenience everyone and cost the taxpayers. Meanwhile the taxpayers are who pay their checks. Why not just stop unionizing labor and have the best force of concrete workers complete jobs faster, better and cheaper instead of letting a bunch of adult babies throw temper tantrums and caving into ridiculous bullshit like this?

    1. Time was you diss the Teamsters like that and some of the boys would show up with a couple of 5-gallon buckets of that concrete you mentioned. For your feet. And they’d throw in a free ride to the nearest waterway.

      1. Unions have their right, and they were hard earned,
        but I don’t think that was one of them.
