Drivers who use State Route 202/Redmond-Fall City Road Northeast during their weekend travels should give themselves plenty of time to get around this Saturday.

Washington State Department of Transportation signal maintenance crews will reduce SR 202 to a single lane at 218th Avenue Northeast to install active warning signs along the highway. These signs are wired to begin flashing when traffic ahead is slowed or stopped, giving drivers more time to slow down in order to prevent rear-end collisions.

Flaggers will alternate traffic through the open lane from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Travelers should consider using alternate routes to get around the closure or expect extensive delays.

In the Redmond area, drivers can get real-time traffic information on their phone with the WSDOT traffic app, tracking the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed and get advanced information from the Seattle Area Construction Page.
