Map of I-405 ramp closures in downtown Bellevue. 4/12/2018

Updated night closures on I-405 in Bellevue on April 16 - 19

Please disregard previous project alert titled "Night closures on I-405 in Bellevue on April 16 – 19" as there have been a few changes to the planned work.

Overnight drivers should be aware of an upcoming ramp closure on Interstate 405 in downtown Bellevue. Beginning on Monday, April 16, Sound Transit's contractor will set horizontal supports across the highway for the future elevated light rail structure. Work is scheduled to occur on April 16-19.

What to expect:

  • From 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night, Sound Transit's contractor will close the southbound I-405 on-ramp entrance via Northeast 8th Street in Bellevue to set span beams.
  • The southbound off-ramp exit to Northeast 8th Street (Exit 13B) will be maintained while work is occurring.
  • During the closures, drivers should follow the signed detour.


The excellent work of Sound Transit's contractor, Stacey and Witbeck / Atkinson, is proceeding ahead of schedule. So, the following closures on I-405 are no longer occurring on April 16-19:

  • Full closure on northbound I-405 between Northeast 8th Street and Main Street
  • The northbound off-ramp to Northeast 6th Street
  • The northbound on-ramp via Northeast 4th Street
