Traffic alert tonight: Westbound Spokane Street Viaduct closure

If you’re heading toward West Seattle late tonight or early tomorrow, from work or play or wherever, this might affect you: 10 pm tonight-5 am tomorrow, it’s the second of three overnight construction closures for the westbound Spokane Street Viaduct – the section of the West Seattle Bridge that’s between I-5 and Highway 99. The first closure (last Thursday night) caught some by surprise despite advance alerts, especially those using I-5, since this means the West Seattle exits will be closed, as well as access from Beacon Hill’s Columbian Way. Here’s the original alert from SDOT.

    I was caught off guard last Thursday night. Was hurrying home after finding out grandma passed away. :( didn’t expect to go up to colombian then down fourth and then first and then down Spokane. I missed on the alerts. Nuts. Now I know.
