For the Reporter

Drivers who use the I-405/SR 167 interchange in Renton should prepare for an extended ramp closure Saturday night through Sunday morning.

Construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation received approval to work slightly longer hours to continue drainage work and some paving work. This work is necessary as part of ongoing construction for the I-405/SR 167 Interchange Direct Connector Project.

This work is weather dependent and subject to change.
