Sign up for Transit Alerts.

Metro’s Friday afternoon commute is winding down. Traffic has been slow all afternoon due to weather and constructions projects. Delays in service are starting to subside but may linger longer than usual.  On 1 Av S and 4 Av S in the SODO district there is heavy traffic due to the closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Be prepared for possible delays.

The viaduct will re-open to traffic one day earlier than announced! On Sunday morning, October 30, Routes 21 Express, 37 southbound, 54, 54 Express, 55, 56 Express, 113, 120, 121, 122 and 125 will return to their regular routing using the new viaduct bypass in SODO. The temporary stops at 4 Av S & S Lander Street and 4 Av And Jackson St Island will no longer be served.  Expect some delays in service on the bypass due to narrow lanes and lower speed limits and please be aware that bus times may be longer before the viaduct was demolished.

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