SEATTLE -- If you’re driving from West Seattle or lower South Spokane Street to southbound Interstate 5 this weekend, plan for delays. Crews will close both upper and lower ramps of the South Spokane Street viaduct to southbound I-5, the Washington State Department of Transportation said Thursday.

This is the final weekend of ramp closures to repair aging expansion joints on the West Seattle/I-5 interchange, the department said. The ramps will close at 10 p.m. Friday, May 3, and reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, May 6.
