Drivers traveling between Seattle and Mercer Island will face closures on the floating bridge from 9:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and 1 to 2:45 p.m. Thursday while the Blue Angels practice. That same section of I-90 will be closed from 12:55 to 2:45 p.m. Friday through Sunday for the shows.

Several I-90 and I-5 ramps will also be affected. Visit the Seattle Times for a breakdown of locations, dates and times of closures or go directly to WSDOT.
