I-205 lane closures set for Salmon Creek area



Construction work in the Salmon Creek area will close one lane of Interstate 205 starting tonight, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Girder installation for a new offramp from Interstate 5 to Northeast 139th Street will close one lane of southbound I-205 from 8 tonight to 6 a.m. Thursday, according to WSDOT.

The left-lane closure on I-205 is needed so crews can stage a crane on the freeway to place the girders as part of the Salmon Creek Interchange Project.

Additional girder setting will cause lane closures on southbound I-205 from 8 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to WSDOT.

Workers are building a new bridge and interchange at 139th Street as part of the $133 million project, which is expected to be complete next year.
