Just stay home: Mercer exit closed Monday morning

Sunday, April 28, 2019

SDOT Traffic
Upcoming road closures for Monday a.m. commute:
1) ★ I-5 SB mainline off-ramp to Mercer St will be closed 10pm tonight until further notice.
2) Mercer St b/w Fairview Ave N & Terry Ave N will be closed to EB/WB traffic.
3) Boren Ave N closed north of Mercer St.

WSDOT Traffic
The southbound I-5 mainline off-ramp to Mercer Street will close at 10 p.m. Sunday and remain closed through at least the Monday morning commute. The Seattle Department of Transportation has announced that Mercer Street will remain closed through at least the morning commute as the investigation continues into the crane collapse.

People traveling into Seattle on I-5 should expect heavy traffic and long delays, particularly southbound throughout Seattle. The Mercer Street closure also will affect northbound traffic.

Expect congestion throughout Seattle and around the greater Seattle area as people seek alternative routes. To limit the backups, people also should
  • Avoid single-occupancy vehicle use
  • Use transit, particularly light rail
  • If possible, telecommute
We know some of you don’t have a choice to use alternatives. If that is the case, plan for much longer than normal travel time.
