Drivers heading to Seattle this weekend, including fans going to the Seahawks game on Saturday night, should plan for backups on Interstate 5, the Washington State Department of Transportation advises.
A lane and a ramp in downtown Seattle will be closed almost all day Saturday and half of Sunday.
On Saturday WSDOT is expecting southbound delays of up to 60 minutes through downtown and delays of up to 20 minutes on Sunday.
The I-5 express lanes will be open southbound all day and that means northbound drivers heading into Seattle on Saturday afternoon and evening should expect backups up to mid-Boeing Field.
WSDOT advises that anyone coming to Seattle from Tacoma and south King County should take Highway 99, Highway 509 or Airport Way to avoid delays.
