West Lake Sammamish Parkway: A section of West Lake Sammamish Parkway damaged by a mudslide on Jan. 22 will likely reopen in late March or early April. The city of Bellevue is working on repairing the street. As a result of the closure, Interstate 90 is experiencing increased pressure and congestion. (Possible I-90 congestion effects from Jan. 22 through construction period; note though that SR 520 tolling effects might make cause-effect difficult to determine)
