Bridge Repair Work to Close a Single Lane of Westbound I-90 in Preston Beginning Sept. 30

Forwarded on behalf of Washington State Department of Transportation

People who use westbound Interstate 90 to get between North Bend and Preston should plan for additional delays throughout the next two weeks.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close a single lane of westbound I-90 across the Raging River Bridge, located just east of the Preston/Fall City off-ramp (exit 22). These around-the-clock closures will give them room to repair the roadway approaching the bridge, creating a smoother ride for drivers. 

Closure details 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 to 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5:

  • The left lane of westbound I-90 will be closed.
  •  
  • The two open lanes will be shifted to the right.
  •  
  • The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.

8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7 to 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 12:

  • The right lane of westbound I-90 will be closed.
  •  
  • The two open lanes will be shifted to the left.
  •  
  • The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.

All of this weather-dependent work is part of a $21.7 million project to rehabilitate I-90 between Issaquah and North Bend.

Drivers can get real-time information on their phone with the WSDOT traffic app, following the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed and by checking the I-90 construction webpage.
