    The Rock n Roll marathon course uses the viaduct and north to Green Lake. DOT could do their work on Sunday instead of closing Hwy 99 on Saturday.

      Pretty sure DOT crews get paid double time on Sundays, time and a half on Saturdays.

        No double time for wsdot when I was there.  In fact after a few promotion s and years under the belt and there was no overtime, just had to get the work done.
