There won’t be any Blue Angels over Lake Washington for Seafair this weekend, but there will still be closures of the Interstate 90 floating bridge.

The Patriots Jet Team will be part of the Boeing Air Show Friday through Sunday. Due to FAA rules, the bridge must be closed to all drivers, walkers and cyclists to ensure safety and minimize distractions for drivers.

The closures will happen between 1:15 to 2:40 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The following ramps will also be closed.

  • Both directions of I-5 to eastbound I-90 ramp (closed up to 30 minutes prior to practice or show)
  • Rainier Avenue ramps to eastbound I-90 (closed up to 30 minutes prior to practice or show)
  • 76th Avenue to westbound I-90 (closed up to 30 minutes prior to practice or show)
  • Island Crest Way to westbound I-90 (closed up to 30 minutes prior to practice or show)
  • Eastbound I-90 to West Mercer Way (closed up to 30 minutes prior to practice or show)
  • East Mercer Way to westbound I-90 (closed up one hour prior to practice or show)
  • West Mercer Way to westbound I-90 (up to one hour prior to practice or show)

The State Route 520 floating bridge will remain open.

The Blue Angels show was canceled this year due to federal budget cuts.
