Great events and good projects or traffic headaches - take your pick

Thursday, August 6, 2015


Screaming Taylor Swift fans, about 50,000 of them, will pack CenturyLink Field Saturday night to shake it off with their favorite superstar.

And don’t forget the Mariners start a home stand Friday night. For all the details on special events and another look at closures happening around the area that could impact you, check out our WSDOT August calendar.

If you thought you could take Aurora south into Seattle:

Seattle’s landmark Aurora Avenue Bridge is getting a fresh paint job. Crews will start work on Monday, Aug. 10, on a two-year project to repaint and repair portions of the 84-year-old span. Most of the work will be done from inside containment platforms attached to the underside of the bridge. You can read more about the project in our news release

If you make it past Seattle, on your way to the airport this will be in your path:

Westbound SR 518 ramp to Sea-Tac Airport to close nightly beginning Saturday 

Catching a flight is stressful enough. To avoid more airport stress over the next two weeks, give yourself some extra drive time if you have to go to Sea-Tac in the middle of the night. Beginning Saturday, Aug. 8, the westbound SR 518 ramp to Sea-Tac Airport will be closed nightly at 11:30pm for paving work. Drivers will follow a signed detour. The ramp will reopen at 6am on Sundays and 4:30am Monday through Friday. There will be no closures on Friday nights. Work is scheduled to be complete at 4:30am Friday, Aug. 21.
