NEXT WEEKEND: NB Highway 99 closure

Looking ahead to next weekend, one closure alert: WSDOT plans to close northbound Highway 99 all the way from the West Seattle Bridge to the north end of the tunnel, 11 pm Friday (October 11th) to 4 am Monday (October 14th).

    There was also a WSDOT notice last Thursday that stated,”SR 99 tunnel maintenance closure All lanes of the
    southbound SR 99 tunnel will close from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, to 8
    a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, for routine maintenance.”Any word if this is still on, too?

      I saw that in one spot some days back but it is not mentioned on the page I linked.

    Why close the entire roadway, there is a exit prior to the tunnel entry?

    I really hope they fix the street lights while it is closed.

    Just curious, will this be a common occurrence going forward with the new tunnel?  It seems that there have been quite a few closures since the tunnel opened.

    With the toll on the tunnel about 1 month away, has there been any updates on WSDOT’s “pay as you go” capable toll system?  I have my sticker but have been waiting on activating.——

    Or, wait until this summer to open your new account in WSDOT’s new Good To Go! system, which will not require a $30 pre-paid balance!

      good question Chemist; I also have my Good to Go sticker, but don’t want to deposit $30 into an account that I may rarely get to use, especially if they keep having closures on weekends, the only time I need the tunnel to get to my jobs

    this is so annoying, so many weekend closures; the only time I need to use the tunnel for my job is weekends, so why should I bother getting a Good-to-Go pass?  please fix all the problems this time over the full weekend closure, then keep the tunnel open, or I’ll have to join all the tunnel-haters and use surface streets to get to my jobs in Magnolia/Queen Anne/Ballard; jeesh 

Sorry, comment time is over.
