Ever wanted to walk on The Viaduct? Here’s your next chance

SCENIC_Alaskan_Way_AWV1.jpgAs mentioned here before, the next scheduled weekend of Alaskan Way Viaduct inspection shutdowns is coming up October 18-19 (the reminder’s up continuously on the WSB Traffic page). The times are now set, too: 6 am-6 pm both days, with the Battery Street Tunnel staying closed overnight between the two days. Plus, the state Transportation Department is offering “short walking tours” the morning of Saturday 10/18. No one under 16, no pets. RSVP required – e-mail viaduct@wsdot.wa.gov or call 888/AWV-LINE. (To catch up on what else is up with The Viaduct, check the WSB coverage archive and/or the official website at alaskanwayviaduct.org.)

    Will we have to wear hard hats for safety? ;-)

    Probably not – we walk on the AWV every year during Race for the Cure and it’s not required. However, the last media briefing we went to, for the electrical-relocation groundbreaking, required hard hats and safety vests even though there was barely a construction crew in sight.

    I walked on the Viaduct during the St. Paddy’s Day Dash – and it was crazy to see how cracked and crumbling it was up close – and this was in 2002. great views, though!

    If you want to walk on the Viaduct for a good cause, the Heart Walk is on Saturday, October 4.

    The 5K route takes participants on the Viaduct.
