Getting to events will be a challenge this weekend; SR 99 closures mean plan ahead and leave early

information from SDOT

Getting around in Seattle this weekend and early next week will be complicated by the closure of State Route 99, including the Alaskan Way Viaduct, to accommodate the demolition and replacement of the section of this highway that crosses above Broad Street.

State Route 99 way will be closed to both directions of traffic from the West Seattle Bridge to Valley Street from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. The exception will be to accommodate Seahawk traffic leaving CenturyLink Field on Friday night.
