Metro’s Wednesday evening commute is winding down with no significant delays or disruptions in transit service to report.

WSDOT has made an emergency closure of several lanes on northbound I-5 near Southcenter that is expected to last through 4 am Thursday, October 20th.

This is likely to create widespread traffic congestion throughout South King County and along the I-405 corridor. It will create delays for bus service, too. Please give yourself extra time to travel.

Please note the information below about upcoming events

Alaskan Way Viaduct to be closed for 9 Days

From Friday evening, October 21 at 7:00 PM through the end of service on Sunday, October 30, Metro bus routes 21 Express, 37 southbound, 54, 54 Express, 55, 56 Express, 113, 120, 121, 122, and 125 will be rerouted off of the Alaskan Way Viaduct due to construction.

During the closure, the buses will travel via Fourth Avenue South in the SODO area and Third Avenue in downtown Seattle.

Bus stops on Columbia and Seneca streets at Second Avenue will be temporarily closed during this time.

Both northbound and southbound buses will stop on Fourth Avenue South at South Lander Street in SODO for convenient transfers to Link light rail and other bus routes.

Northbound buses will also stop on Fourth Avenue South at the South Jackson Street island stop; and southbound buses will not make any stops between Third Avenue at Columbia Street and Fourth Avenue South at South Lander Street.

Traffic congestion on the north end of the viaduct is also likely to cause delays for Metro bus routes 5, 15, 16, 18, 26 Express, 28 Express and 358.
