Northbound SR 99 still a tad slow from S Lucile St to DT Seattle (~3 miles). But, that slowdown is about half the length of the one on NB I-5 for . SRs 99, 509 & 599 still great options as alternate routes, especially compared to NB I-405 and its 7-mile slowdown.

1 p.m. update: Drivers on NB I-5 starting to really feel backups around Swift/Albro & are stop-n-go for about 5 miles. Also: - NB I-405 still 👎 from Tukwila to Newcaste (~7 miles), worst thru Renton - NB SR 99 slow from S Lucile to DT (~3 miles), still best alt route

Either way, traffic still isn't ideal on northbound I-405.

Crash on NB I-405 off-ramp to NE 195th/Beardslee in causing a minor inconvenience for drivers getting off the freeway. Luckily, folks are being careful. 👍

The crews are working a little further up. We need to start blocking off lanes sooner on I-5 in order to give drivers a smoother transition from five lanes to two. Doing that helps keeps our crews safer than if we were to close lanes abruptly behind where they're working.

Renton➡️Bellevue = 23 minutes (11 minutes slower than normal) 7 miles of off-and-on slowdowns on NB I-405 btwn Newcastle and Tukwila. Heaviest congestion in Renton. Patience if traveling to the Eastside today. Avoiding ? SRs 99, 509 & 599 are way better options.

We did change our overhead electronic signs yesterday after we saw this was a huge problem. That's made a big difference, but it could be a little better. It just takes a while to change driver behavior when they're use to a certain way. Thanks though!

Still seeing a lot of people doing last-minute left-lane cutting when the two NB I-5 lanes split at the exit to the CD/EB I-90. You can still return to the mainline from the right lane. All this last-minute cutting is doing is slowing everyone down. Just keep going straight

Noon update: Slowdowns on both directions of I-5 remain about the same as last hour (4-5 miles), but NB I-405 is seeing a lot more traffic & it's way slower through Renton than earlier. If you want to avoid traffic, SRs 99, 509 & 599 look wide open. USE THEM!

Not good for those heading to the game ⬇️ Crash is blocking left lane of WB I-90 just before the exit to Edgar Martinez (aka the Safeco Field exit).

Traffic on NB I-405 getting a little more condensed in the Renton S-curves. Appears to be result of traffic merging from SR 169 and more alternate route-takers. Add plenty of extra travel time if you're going through the Renton area.
