Unscheduled road repairs along a small stretch of the northbound exit roadway is causing the closure of the south entrance at 182nd St at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and is expected to create additional congestion on the airport drives. Due to the road repairs, travelers are asked to be aware of increased time to travel through the airport drives and are encouraged to use alternative options for pickup and dropoff of passengers.
The upper and lower drives both empty onto the northbound expressway where road repairs have reduced the number of lanes from four to two. This is slowing down traffic exiting the airport and backing up the drives during peak periods. The repairs are expected to last several days.
