Update 12:35 p.m.:
Eastbound State Route 520 is now re-open between Interstate 5 and Montlake Blvd. It remains closed from there to 92nd Ave NE in Clyde Hill, according to the Washington Department of Transportation.
Original story:
This weekend, the Puget Sound region will see a major highway shutdown on State Route 520, while other projects have been postponed due to this week’s surprise snowfall.
Friday at 11 p.m., the Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) shut down both directions of SR-520 between Interstate 5 and 92nd Avenue. Crews are placing girders for the new bike/pedestrian path over SR-520 as well as a direct access ramp to the Montlake lid.

From 11p tonight to 5a Monday morning (2/27)…

From Chokepoints: SR-520 Montlake Project to hit milestone this weekend
The Revive I-5 project through Everett has been postponed this weekend due to the weather. The project is set to resume sometime next week. Crews are expected to close all but one lane on northbound I-5 between Lowell Road and the Snohomish River Bridge.
The Chilly Hilly bike ride, Washington’s formal kick-off of biking season in the Northwest, is set for this Sunday, Feb. 26, on Bainbridge Island, bringing thousands of cyclists to the island. Most participants will arrive via the Seattle/Bainbridge ferry throughout the day. Check ahead for availability if you are planning to hop on that route.
The ride starts at 7 a.m. and goes until 3 p.m., as biking enthusiasts ride along a 33-mile loop of coastline.
Additionally, heading into next week, be prepared for slower speeds on southbound I-5 at the Fife curve. Starting Tuesday, Feb. 28, a temporary 50 mph speed limit will be set between Porter Way/54th Ave. E.
