Traffic will be intermittently slowed down by Washington State Patrol for up to 15 minutes between Lynwood and north Seattle as crews pull overhead feeder cables across the highway. Traffic will return to normal speeds once past the work area.

Drivers should be prepared for delays and look for alternate routes if possible.
