Traffic-alert reminder: Viaduct/99 closure NEXT weekend

While everything is status quo with the Alaskan Way Viaduct/Highway 99 north of the West Seattle Bridge THIS weekend, WSDOT reminds you that won’t be case by this time NEXT weekend. The map above shows the planned closure – for various reasons you can read about here – starting 10 pm next Friday night, August 22, with the exception of two access points for traffic exiting the Seahawks game until midnight. By Monday morning, August 25th, the WS Bridge-to-Battery St. Tunnel section should reopen, but the tunnel-to-Valley St. section will stay closed two more days:

Again, that all starts NEXT Friday night. And we’ll be reminding you daily in our regular WSB traffic coverage between now and then.

    Thanks for the detailed update on this traffic situation. As always, WSB is ahead of the other local media regarding traffic issues.

    Can you confirm if the ramp from the WS bridge to NB 00 will be open or closed come Monday morning? There is a sign there saying it will be close, but I cannot verify that through the SDOT/WSDOT sites.

      Northbound 99 from our bridge to the Battery Street Tunnel is supposed to reopen by early Monday morning. But because the stretch from the BST to Valley St. is supposed to be closed two more days, you will have to get off 99 by Western Avenue. I know it’s really confusing that this is described in some places as a “four-day closure,” but the only stretch closed four days is the BST-Valley part.

    I am living in Vancouver, BC. I will be going to Lark Restaurant at 926 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122 for dinner at 5:30 pm.

    May I know will the road closure of Viaduct/99 closure affect me at all ?

    Please kindly advise ASAP.

      Hi – it shouldn’t, just don’t use Highway 99 – you’d be coming down on I-5, I assume, unless you are taking the train or a bus?

Sorry, comment time is over.
