Why you’ll need a cheat-sheet for next weekend’s Highway 99/Alaskan Way Viaduct closure

(TUESDAY UPDATE: SDOT has added more details to its rundown of what’s happening)

Next weekend’s Alaskan Way Viaduct/Highway 99 closure – NOT related to the tunnel trouble, just the semi-annual inspection closure – is NOT the basic “entire stretch from Battery Street Tunnel to West Seattle Bridge closed from late Friday to early Monday” scenario. Here’s how next weekend will break down, according to WSDOT:

Friday, Feb. 28 – Sunday, March 2

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between Valley Street and the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between Valley Street and South Spokane Street from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between Valley Street and the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday.

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between North 48th Street and South Spokane Street from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday.

Both directions of SR 99 will be closed between Denny Way and South Spokane Street from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

    A map would be helpful for people who don’t have the entire street grid memorized.

      George – I am hopeful WSDOT will have one before the week is out. Google Maps has just dramatically changed the way it works and I haven’t had time to learn its changes and make a new map of my own, though we’ll do a point to point if they do NOT publish one before then …

    i’m not sure a map will help. i got a headache trying to piece that word salad/schedule together.
    .
    WSDOT could have saved the lives of thousands of innocent electrons by simply closing 99 from valley to spokane streets for the duration.
    .
    sheesh. i don’t envy WSB’s job of translating it. good luck!

    bummer, getting to the WSB-highlighted event at Seattle Center (the park design) and the summer camp fair could be a little difficult. ugh

Sorry, comment time is over.
