More info on March 22-23 shutdown of The Viaduct

The state’s monthly Alaskan Way Viaduct e-mail update just came out (read it here), and it confirms the inspection shutdown previously announced for March 22-23 is planned for 6 am-6 pm each day – SCENIC_Alaskan_Way_AWV1.jpgThe Viaduct WILL reopen 6 pm Saturday-6 am Sunday, but the Battery Street Tunnel will stay closed for the entire weekend, 6 am Saturday 3/22 through 6 pm Sunday 3/23. Also, if you’re interested in joining a walking tour for a firsthand look at The Viaduct while it’s closed to traffic, they’re offering tours on the lower deck 9 am-noon on 3/22; no kids, no pets, and you must make a reservation — call 888/AWV-LINE or e-mail

    What brilliant strategist at WSDOT decided that it would be a good idea to close the viaduct/tunnel on Easter weekend? I’m sure NO ONE will be trying to go to church, drive to see family, or go out to Easter brunch. Good-ness…might need to pack a lunch for the trip with the viaduct down.

Sorry, comment time is over.
