Metro’s Friday PM commute wrap-up, plus the Alaskan Way Viaduct begins tonight and other weekend events that may impact service

Sign up for Transit Alerts.

Metro’s Friday commute is winding down with Alaskan Way Viaduct will close for 9 days beginning tonight at 7:30 PM. 

Reroutes for the 11 buses which use the viaduct will begin at 7:00 PM.  If your bus normally uses the viaduct, remember to board your bus on southbound 3rd Av and not on Columbia St.

Even if your bus doesn’t use the viaduct, you may experience delays in service due to heavy vehicle traffic on Aurora Av, I-5 and local roads.  Traffic congestion on the north end of the viaduct is likely to cause specific delays for Metro bus routes 5, 15, 16, 18, 26 Express, 28 Express and 358.

More information about the closure and the affect on bus travel is available at Metro Online.
