Eastlake residents needing to get downtown this weekend should be aware that the I-5 ramps at Mercer will close at 11 p.m. Friday and reopen at 5 a.m. on Monday. The closure is part of the ongoing work on the Mercer Corridor project.
Fairview Avenue N. will be closed as well between Mercer and Valley streets. Mercer will be closed to traffic between Westlake and Fairview Avenue N.
Metro bus routes 70, 71, 72, 73 and 83 will be rerouted off of Fairview during the closure and onto Eastlake Avenue.
More information on the project, as well as detour maps, can be found on the Seattle Department of Transportation’s website.
