Permanent Changes Coming to I-405, SR-520 On-Ramps

The Washington State Department of Transportation has released a video explaining the new way to get on Interstate 405 and State Route 520.

Editor's note: WSDOT's plans to close I-405 this weekend, Sept. 23-26, has been postponed because of weather.

After this , some downtown Bellevue on-ramps to both I-405 and State Route 520 will change permanently.

Drivers will no longer be able to access SR 520 from Northeast Eighth Street, according to the the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Motorists need to take Northeast 10th Street in order to access 520. The new Northeast Eighth Street on-ramp will lead to northbound I-405 but will put drivers on the interstate after it has already split with the onramp to 520.

Northbound I-405 will shut down completely this weekend through downtown Bellevue as crews connect the new freeway onramps. When the freeway is re-opened on Monday, drivers on northbound I-405 will exit to 520 approximately one-half mile earlier.

Check out this video by WSDOT if you need help remembering the change.

Crews will connect new ramps between Interstate 405 and State Route 520 starting at 11 p.m. Sept. 23. The freeway is slated to reopen at 4 a.m. Monday, Sept. 26.
