It makes perfect sense that with gazillion dollar super jets flying dangerously overhead, we should definitely shut down I-90. There's probably a good reason they don't shutter 520, but I don't know what it is, and whatever. They don't.

In a region where traffic is terrible, having one of the gateways to the east side closed means unless you're catching a lift on an F-18, travel is gonna suck. Getting to stand on the ends of the I-90 bridge does look pretty cool though.

Here are the times where things get shut down and when you should be looking for a great place to watch the action.

Punch it, Chewie! #blueangels #seafair
