The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are on their way to Seattle and are due to fly by the Space Needle around 12:30 pm.
The Blue Angels are gearing up for Seafair for the first time in two years – and that means I-90 will be shut down several times over the next few days while the Blue Angels practice, then put on a full show next weekend.
The Washington State Department of Transportation will close I-90 from Interstate 5 in Seattle to Island Crest Way on Mercer Island during practice flights and performances Thursday, July 31, through Sunday, Aug 3.
Certain I-90 and I-5 ramps will also close 30 minutes to one hour before flight times. Drivers who need to cross Lake Washington should plan to do so at least one hour before the closures or use an alternate route, such as Interstate 405 or State Route 522.http://www.king5.com/news/Blue-Angels-r ... 24702.html
