Metro’s Wednesday afternoon commute wrap-up, plus the Alaskan Way Viaduct is closed

Sign up for Transit Alerts.

 Metro’s Wednesday aftermnoon commute is winding down.   Traffic into downtown Seattle continues to be heavy on the West Seattle Bridge and along 1 Av S and 4 Av S due to the Alaskan Way Viaduct closure.  There are also heavy volumes on northbound I-5 between S Albro Pl and downtown Seattle. Expect some delays in service along these corridors.  

Reroutes for the 11 buses which use the viaduct are in effect.  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.
