Nighttime drivers on Interstate 405 through Bellevue, Wash., should expect some delays next week when crews will close multiple lanes, including a major closure Tuesday, July 27, when all mainline lanes of northbound I-405 between N.E. Fourth Street and N.E. 12th Street will be closed. Drivers will be detoured to the collector distributor lane. Lane closures begin at 8 p.m. with all mainline lanes closed by 11:30 p.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is bringing in large cranes to lift large bridge girders onto the new N.E. 12th Street bridge next week. The construction is part of the Bellevue Braids project aimed at relieve up to 8 hours of congestion a day on I-405 in Bellevue.
