Start thinking now about the viaduct closure on Jan 11

Friday, December 7, 2018

The night of Friday, January 11, both directions of SR 99 through downtown Seattle will close for three weeks so crews can realign the roadway into the new tunnel.

If you work/live/play in the area, now is the time to make plans to change your commute patterns during the month of January.

WSDOT expects traffic disruptions across Central Puget Sound and need everyone to help avoid gridlock by talking to their employers and families about doing one thing differently:
  • Shift your travel time to avoid the busiest times on the roadway
  • Bike or walk to work or school
  • Start or join a carpool
  • Start a telecommute program for employees
  • Use transit, particularly light rail and King County Water Taxi
  • Stay off the road: work from home, postpone discretionary trips, take time off
  • Be prepared for your new route when the closure ends and the new tunnel opens.
