Traffic alert: Alaskan Way Viaduct weekend-closure time change

(WSDOT June 3rd photo of south-end Viaduct construction work)
For your Friday night planning, if you’re going to be off-peninsula: Both the Alaskan Way Viaduct project website’s home page and the city’s weekly roundup of road-construction traffic alerts are now showing a change in the start time of this weekend’s Viaduct closure (for south-end construction work): 5 am Saturday, instead of 11 pm Friday night. (Ending time still set for 5 am Monday; the northbound section will reopen later Saturday from the stadiums northward, but that still means no access from the West Seattle Bridge or 99 south of downtown.)

    As a new comer to the area I’m not sure exactly what this means. Does it primarily effect people traveling to and from downtown? I was planning to go “off peninsula” to Ballard tomorrow. How do I do this?

    thanks. wren

      Good news, Wren, the closure ended REALLY early – late Saturday night. So you can take the Viaduct! – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
