What's the word on I-90 bike lane during expansion joint replacement?

DoT says here that the expansion joints on the bike lanes won't be replaced until the 27th:

WSDOT - Project - I-90 - WB East Channel Bridge Expansion Joint Repair

But nowhere does it say whether or not the bike lane will remain OPEN while the freeway lanes are closed.

I need to ride westbound over the bridge this Saturday and again Sunday. I'm racing on the Seattle side and no way I'm driving over the bridge... I'd rather have a nice warm-up ride over the bridge instead..

If you read the WSDOT blog here:

The I-90 closure survival guide - The WSDOT blog - Washington State Department of Transportation

You'll see in the comments section at the bottom where the DOT says the bike lane will be open.

Thanks. Good to know.

LOL they addressed the bike path question in the comments section on blogpost? That's hilarious. Locked file cabinet in the dark basement of the local planning office on Alpha Centaury indeed.

They also mentioned in at least one place that bikes and pedestrians will require escorts, however IIRC that is at night when it will be very little impact.
