Travelers who use northbound Interstate 405 in Renton should prepare for overnight traffic delays starting Monday evening, March 20, to Friday morning, March 24.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will reduce the interstate to two lanes north of Northeast 44th Street starting at 8 p.m. each night. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. the next morning. During the lane closures, crews will replace the overhead message sign located about a mile north of Northeast 44th Street. The sign displays traffic information for travelers.

The work is part of a project to replace three old message signs. Crews replaced a sign on I-5 near South 178th Street in SeaTac last week. Next week they will replace the sign on westbound State Route 520 just before 124th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue.
