On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 2 to 4, Seafair Hydroplane and Air Show events will affect traffic and bus service in South Seattle and the I-90 corridor.

I-90 closures & Air Show impacts:

The I-90 bridge will be closed for Seafair Airshow performances and practices from 1:15 to 2:40 p.m. Friday Saturday and Sunday.

During these times, ST routes 550 and 554 will be rerouted.

Free Hydro Shuttle & Route 50 reroute:

From Friday to August 4, Metro will operate a free shuttle between Columbia City Link light rail station and Genesee Park. Board the shuttle eastbound on S Angeline St just west of 32nd Av S. It will operate frequently, as buses fill, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Metro Route 50 will be rerouted during this time.

On Friday and Saturday only, Metro will operate a shuttle every 30 minutes between the Mercer Island and South Bellevue P&R lots to connect customers with Sound Transit routes 550 or 554. A regular fare is required on the Mercer Island Shuttle.

The Mercer Island shuttle will not operate on Sunday.
