Repair Work Requires Lane Closures Next Week
Crews will work on the Alaskan Way Viaduct and the Aurora Bridge

Seattle – Next Monday, September 28, through Friday, October 2, a Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) crew will make repairs to a damaged guard rail on the Alaskan Way Viaduct. During the work each day, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the right northbound lane will be closed between College and Massachusetts streets.

Also on Monday, September 28, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., SDOT will make expansion joint repairs on the Aurora Bridge. In order to accomplish the work, the left lane southbound will be closed for about two-thirds the length of the bridge and the northbound left lane prior to the bridge deck will also be closed. Advance warning signs will alert motorists of the lane closures.

Motorists can expect slowing of traffic and are urged to use caution through the work zones on both structures.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
