Why is WSDOT repairing the pavement on eastbound I-90 between Issaquah and North Bend?
The pavement on the 15-mile section of eastbound I-90 between Issaquah and North Bend is more than 40 years old. With the approximately 73,000 vehicles using this portion of the major east-west corridor each day, the aging concrete is cracked and in need of repair.

WSDOT contractor crews will repair the cracked concrete and replace select concrete panels that are damaged beyond repair. Crews will pave the outside shoulder and repave 10 on- and off-ramps during the two-year project.

Crews will also overlay the eastbound I-90 Winery Road and westbound Raging River bridges with new concrete.

What can drivers expect?
Drivers should expect single lane closures during the day and up to two lanes closed during overnight hours.
The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.

The End Result
Repairing this section of eastbound I-90 will provide a smoother driving surface and preserve the roadway for decades to come.

Project Benefits
Repairing the concrete preserves the highway, reduces emergency repair costs and eliminates cracks and ruts from the freeway which can collect water and reduce traction.
