Weekend traffic reminder: Highway 99 closed north of downtown

December 7, 2013 at 8:13 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 2 Comments

One weekend traffic reminder if you are heading out of West Seattle: Highway 99 is closed north of downtown, between the Battery Street Tunnel and Valley Street, as part of the ongoing Mercer project, and is scheduled to be closed all weekend; northbound 99 traffic will have to get off at the Western Avenue exit. If you’re going to the lower Queen Anne/Seattle Center area, there are surface closures too. It’s all explained here.

  1. so, if the closure was north of the tunnel, any reason why they had the 99 access lane (far right lane) of the west seattle bridge barricaded with orange cones? was it due to the light bulb changing? they had the last 20 or so feet open so you could access 99 at the last minute, but didn’t make any sense, really, you’d have to jump over the bus lane to get to 99. this was Saturday around noon. I was headed to 4th avenue, but was curious…

  2. Yes, there was some unannounced signage/light work. I had to head east over the bridge twice yesterday and saw it. Confused me at first too because I thought “it’s the 99 closure – no, wait, that’s not until after Western …”
