Notice: Eastbound SR 520 off-ramp to Montlake Boulevard closing next Monday and Tuesday nights

Heads up if you’re traveling to the Montlake area from I-5 next Monday and Tuesday nights. Crews will close the eastbound SR 520 off-ramp to Montlake Boulevard both nights.

  • The off-ramp will close Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 18 and 19, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. 

WSDOT maintenance crews will conduct joint repairs at the eastbound Montlake off-ramp. This closure will not affect westbound SR 520.

Eastbound drivers headed to Montlake
To reach the Montlake area from I-5 during these times, follow the signs to exit at Northeast 45th Street. If you exit I-5 onto eastbound SR 520, you’ll have to cross the floating bridge before you turn around.

Eastbound drivers headed to the Eastside
Eastbound SR 520 will remain open during the nighttime off-ramp closure. Drivers traveling from Seattle to the east side of Lake Washington will not be affected by the closure.

This work is not associated with the SR 520 Program. If you have questions about the work, please contact Nicole Daniels at 206-440-4479.
