In this update:

Montlake Boulevard closing this weekend, Sept. 15-18

We’ll close Montlake Boulevard from 10 p.m. Friday Sept. 15 to 6 a.m. Monday, Sept. 18. This closure will allow crews to work on utilities, pour concrete roadway and place sign structures on Montlake Boulevard.

The closure is for both directions of Montlake Boulevard between East Louisa Street and East Hamlin Street. All associated SR 520 on- and off-ramps to and from Montlake will also close.

Please take note: Drivers heading east on SR 520 from I-5 won’t have a way to exit the highway at Montlake and will need to pay a toll for crossing the bridge.

There will be a signed detour for bicycles and pedestrians.
