Drivers heading to Seattle on I-90 this week will face delays because of the Navy’s Blue Angels practices and performances.
I-90 will be closed eastbound and westbound, mainline and express lanes, between I-5 in Seattle and Mercer Island on Thursday, Aug. 5, 9:45 a.m.-noon and 1:15-2:30 p.m.; Friday, Aug. 6, 12:45-2:40 p.m.; and Saturday, Aug. 7, and Sunday, Aug. 8, 12:45-2:40 p.m., the Washington State Department of Transportation said.
I-90 east of Mercer Island will not be closed during the performance, although drivers should note that heavy congestion during these closures often restricts access to the exits.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
