  1. WSB – you missed the NB closure Sep 14-17

    Friday, Sept. 14 – morning of Monday, Sept. 17 – Northbound SR 99 will be closed between South Royal Brougham Way and the West Seattle Bridge from 11 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

    I was wondering if at the conclusion of this closure the new northbound ramp will be open? (But we still have to merge to 2 lanes shorly after the top of it)

  2. I previewed it last week after finding it on the SDOT lookahead but didn’t see it in my source e-mail for this week. Upon re-reading for the 10th time, I see they buried it way way down instead of calling it out toward the top … adding, thanks.

  3. WSB, it is oddly written. If it is a NB Closure you would think they’d write it “Northbound SR 99 will be closed between West Seattle Bridge and South Royal Brougham Way”.

  4. does that NB closure still allow for entering 99 at the stadium?

  5. Colleen,

    I think the answer to your question is yes, otherwise they would day closure from West Seattle Bridge to Battery Street tunnel. I think they are doing the final touches on the new northbound bridge segment.
