The decision’s in. No Highway 99 closure this weekend, but WSDOT says one IS on the horizon. The announcement:

This weekend’s scheduled closure of southbound SR 99 through Seattle has been canceled. The viaduct will be open all weekend.

There is another full southbound closure scheduled for the following weekend. The road will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14 through 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17 between the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel and South Spokane Street.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will be completing pavement work needed for the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program. Drivers are encouraged to plan their trip before they go, and expect delays.

    So they’re closing it the same weekend as the next I-5 closure?

      Three weekends left before the rainy season starts again.  Reliable good/paving weather is usually over around here after the first week of October.

    Maximum impact used as punishment. Obey.

Sorry, comment time is over.
