SEATTLE - If you have plans that will take you down I-5 or I-90 this weekend, you might want to plan ahead.
Starting Friday and lasting through the weekend, several closures are coming to Seattle’s major thoroughfares due to special events and scheduled projects.

Saturday: I-5 express lanes until further notice will be reduced to three lanes from Ship Canal Bridge to Mercer St for work connecting SR 520 and I-5.
Sunday: Drivers should expect traffic congestion on I-5, I-90, SR 520 and SR 99 in Seattle due to the Sounders match at Lumen Field. WSDOT estimates congestion will last from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
