Lane Closures on SR-99 in both direction between West Seattle Bridge and the SODO district

Beginning Monday, May 16 at 5 a.m., the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is reducing lanes on SR 99 on the Alaskan Way Viaduct between the West Seattle Bridge and the SODO area to continue construction of new southbound lanes. This is a long-term lane closure.

Vehicles use this stretch of SR-99 each day, with the heaviest volumes during the morning and afternoon commutes.

Spillover traffic could also affect alternate routes, including I-5, the West Seattle Bridge and city streets.

Information to help drivers plan for the lane reduction and learn about commute alternatives is available. For more information on the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement program, visit WSDOT’s website, or call the Alaskan Way Viaduct hotline at 1-888-AWV-LINE.

We will return at 3:00 PM to help keep an Eye on Your Metro Commute.
