First #Realign99 closures now less than 1 week away

Time for the countdown to rev up. The first closures as part of #Realign99 – the work that’s necessary for the Highway 99 viaduct-to-tunnel transition – are now less than 1 week away:

10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4: Stadium ramps close

Northbound SR 99 on-ramp at South Royal Brougham Way closes (near stadiums; connection to I-90 and I-5).
Southbound SR 99 off-ramp at South Atlantic Street closes (near stadiums; connection to I-90 and I-5).

That’s exactly one week before the Alaskan Way Viaduct is permanently closed at 10 pm Friday, January 11th. The full timeline is here.

    Anyone concerned that the opening of the tuunel has yet to be determined. Everything else has a time frame except the most critical element . I am a skeptic of this process coming off without a major hiccup. So far timeframes have been less than accurate

        The realignment work is a state project, as is the tunnel, not the city.

    I would not be surprised if the tunnel opens earlier than planned.  WSDOT usually gives a conservative estimate but usually opens ahead of schedule.

    Contract probably has incentives.

Sorry, comment time is over.
